75% of the S&P 500 is expected to be replaced by 2027. It's more important than ever for corporations to explore new markets for growth. The seeds of innovation are being cultivated fast as millions of new startups launch every year. Corporations have ineffectively capitalized on early stage startup innovation, which brings with it, proof of concept, intelligence and tailored solutions. This panel will feature leaders from corporations pushing themselves to rethink their approach towards innovation and entrepreneurs. Our panelists have both successfully and unsuccessfully built partnerships with startups to bring their new ideas to larger markets. We'll explore all sides of this innovation conundrum and how corporations can capture this opportunity in the future as the stakes get higher.
