Startup & corporate marriage: Doomed to fail?

05. February 2019

Hosted by: HubHub Bratislava

For free

Description for All

Techstars, one of the most prominent US accelerators, are visiting Bratislava!

Join us for a fireside chat with Max Kelly, Senior Vice President of Strategy for Techstars globally, and Natália Kisková, Head of HubHub.

Corporations are increasingly seeking to engage with startups to help them innovate. Startups, alike, are showing a rising interest to work with big companies, rather than only trying to evolve under the umbrella of VCs. While these kind of partnerships have a great potential to help both types of companies reinvent themselves and grow, the road to success can be rocky.

  • If corporations invest in startups, in what ways can it help them innovate?
  • How can external innovations help create internal innovations?
  • What can startups expect when partnering up with corporations?
  • In what ways can startups benefit from joining an accelerator?
  • What is the value of joining an accelerator for high-potential, fast growing startups, if any?
  • Brexit – what effect is it going to have on the innovation landscape in Europe & beyond?

Join us on February 5, 5:30 PM in HubHub to discuss all of this with Max and Natália!

The discussion will be held in English language.
