In this panel, experts from top business schools and corporate innovation groups discuss best practices for startup-BigCo collaboration. BigCos often don’t know how to identify startups with relevant technologies or how to best work with entrepreneurs. Many entrepreneurs would benefit from working with BigCos as test customers and partners, but are concerned with IP or adapting to the structures and policies of corporates. The panel brings together unique perspectives from academic experts who have studied and worked with these collaborations, and the innovation executives that have implemented them.
