How to Survive the Corporate Startup Journey: the Ups & Downs

While many large organizations use corporate-startups as a tool to turn ideas into business impact, many struggle to actually turn these businesses into success. After a great start teams are often disillusioned as it turns out not to be only fun and games and teams might feel alone. To support and prepare you for the emotional roller coaster of the corporate startup hero’s journey we want to share from our experience with over 100+ corporate partnerships.

In this workshop we will share where you typically experience the ups and the downs, overcome common obstacles and how to celebrate the beautiful moments.
