Why startups and corporations should work together?
Innovation is a process that requires constant movement. Startups invent and built new business models, if they are successful, they scale-up and grow rapidly, once they reach a certain size, they become corporates themselves, unable to move as quickly as before and limiting their innovative impact. Finally, large corporations seek out again the innovation support from Start-ups and Scale-ups alike. By forming mutually beneficial partnerships startups and corporations can take advantage of both side’s unique resources and reach synergy effect through cooperation.
