Entrepreneurs have a lot of choice when it comes to getting off the ground: from bootstrap, to angels and traditional VC, and that scary new kid on the block: corporate. Samsung, GE, Google, Intel. The biggest names in technology have made the move into corporate investment. Why…and what’s it mean for you?

These brands recognize that true innovation for the long haul comes from collaboration. It’s not just about acquisitions and competition. A focus on strategic guidance, rather than simply financial returns, yields a new kind of freedom and experimentation. They’re putting real money behind emerging markets for growth – and validation -- like we’ve never seen. The nimbleness of startups married with huge global resources has set fire to the startup world, bringing products to market sooner, at global scale. And we’re just getting started.

Join us to explore the ins and outs of the industry’s latest trend that’s clearly here to stay – and learn how your startup can join the fun.
