Corporate venture accelerators: Which opportunities for your startup?

As more and more every-day large corporations realize the potential of collaboration with startups, startups also understand that a solid partnership with a top player in their industry can open sales channels and growth opportunities.

While in 2005-2015 there has been a proliferation of early stage corporate-driven programs, sometimes funded by marketing budget, in recent months we are registering a transformation in the ways corporations conceive their startup accelerator programs and how they intend to collaborate with startups.

In this talk, we will see what startups need to do to catch these new opportunities.
