Explosive Impact through Startup Acquisition

Speakers

Too often we hear how an aging corporate purchases a hot up-and-comer to inject some sizzle into their business, only for the magic to be killed soon after the deal closes. That narrative has started to evolve thanks to a spate of recent startups acquisitions in which corporate leaders have empowered relentless founders and their teams, allowing for change that impacts growth and the bottom line. If you have an innovation practice or are setting one up, this is the vital SXSW event for you.
