In the era of corporations being disrupted by startups across every industry, every mayor company in Latin America is looking to respond leveraging various strategies. Collaborating with startups using an open innovation approach is one of the widest used strategies to bring innovation into a corporation.

However, few efforts have been successful in Mexico and Latin America, mainly due to cultural clashes between entrepreneurs and executives.

This panel is an effort to bring real life learning to give entrepreneurs a glimpse on the corporate accelerators and corporate venture capital and give executives from different companies an idea on how to bring startup innovation into their business core.
