New study reveals how corporations can boost capability and efficiency working with entrepreneurs20/07/2020
- Corporations have the opportunity of teaming up when working with start-ups to improve the innovation process: reducing costs, de-risking, and improving the value proposition offered to entrepreneurs.
- Such collaborations can unearth new revenue streams for corporate innovation teams by leveraging existing corporate venturing capabilities such as scouting of start-ups, agile prototyping, among others.
- Innovation firms should focus less on ‘packaging’ and more on developing proven processes, which is the most frequent aspect taken into account (in 38% of the analyzed cases) when considering an innovation intermediary.
