When Startups meet Corporates

Ken and Eamonn have seen the good, the bad, and the very ugly when it comes to collaboration between innovative startups and scaleups with large corporates. In this engaging talk, filled with practical examples, tips, and pitfalls, they will talk about how founders and executives can prepare themselves to work together in a more coherent and cohesive way – with a real focus on tactical tips and suggested timelines to help both sides realise their goals. Attendees will come away with a new appreciation for how to think about these types of partnerships, whether they should even think about them at all, and crucially – how to think about KPIs, the quirks on both the startup and corporate side of things, and how to start with the end in mind to ensure a successful outcome.
