ABOUT THE WEBINAR
In this webinar Pierre Rogers, a venture investor and founder, analyzes the phenomenon of greater corporate engagement with startups in their very early stages and outlines a framework for how large enterprises can capitalize on this emerging field.
Drawing lessons from practical cases of corporate-startup synergy based on his own first-hand experience, Pierre places special focus on the value of venture capital. An often underused resource in corporate innovation efforts, the venture capital industry, as Pierre shows, has a critical role to play in helping companies stay ahead of competitors, enter new markets and keep disruption at bay.
- Why corporates are engaging with startups earlier and earlier and how this dynamic is changing the startup investment landscape.
- How corporations can develop the skill set and network to effectively engage the entrepreneur ecosystem.
- How established companies can reach their strategic innovation goals by working with venture capitalists.
