Cooperation between Large Corporations and Start-ups

Friday 21 September 2018 - 11:00 to 14:00
EPFL Innovation Park, Building D, 1015 Lausanne

 

Abstract:

Given the speed of innovation, the shorter technology lifecycles, both large companies and start-ups have a vested interest in collaborating. Successful alliances can significantly speed up time to market and scaling up, amongst others. However, there are many reasons why such partnerships could go wrong. Hence the need for studying the best practices from successful case studies as well as failures, learning from the best companies & start-ups that have developed collaborations contributing to their success. In the workshop you will get first-hand experience from several large corporations and start-ups.
