About this Event

Hosted by Schoolab and YouNoodle

Learn key information on how startups can work with big companies. Hear first-hand from startups who have worked with big companies - their approach and experience around that, including their assessment of why this works/doesn't work .

This talk will be useful for those on either ends of the corporate engagement:

  • For startup founders - learn how to best navigate the corporate decision chain and get the deal close.
  • For corporate folks, learn how to lower the operational risk when working with startups
