Can the old adage “ the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” be applied to a world where startups and big companies work together in previously unthinkable ways? Can more, and not less, creativity and progress be made when a relationship that was once defined as ‘disruptor and disruptee’ decide to work together – in public? What can result when a company with seemingly endless resources, but burdened by their own historic processes – meets and decides to take a risk with a startup.
