If you're a startup, you're probably really good at pitching your solution to customers and investors. But when it comes to partnering with large companies, you might find they're not as excited as you'd hoped. The reality is, large and small companies have different strengths and weaknesses that can make effective partnering a challenge. Learn to make it easy! By establishing a good understanding of enterprise businesses you can capitalize on each other's strengths to forge strong alliances where everyone wins. Rich Maloy will be joined by a group of accelerators.
