Corporate-Startup Partnership Interactive – EuroAsia

Corporate-Startup Partnership Interactive – EuroAsia

1500 – 1700 HKT/SGT | 0800 – 1000 BST | 1100 – 1300 GST | 1700 – 1900 AEST

The 1st Corporate Entrepreneurship Interactive aims to bring prospering partnerships between corporates and startups to the next level by drawing experience sharing between the Asia Pacific and EMENA corporates.

The highly volatile market condition accelerated by the pandemic has put corporates through further tests to distinguish the actual value-creation in corporate-startup partnerships clearly. At the same time, it seems almost mandatory for corporates to include game-changing partnerships with innovative startups to further speed up innovation and transformation.

What mindset should corporate leaders hold while accessing startups for collaboration? How to create a high-impact partnership model with concrete and measurable goals? How to optimise expectations between both parties to alleviate potential cultural and technological clashes to assure smoother sailings?

Though the roads ahead would not be smooth, all parties also seem to see the growing importance of these partnerships. If done right, a massive potential for innovation lies in corporate-startup partnerships.

In this interactive conference, the Corporate Disruptors Forum team will bring the best from the two sides of the world, combining the reach, experience, and insight to help corporate decisionmakers across the EuroAsia region to embark on a faster and smoother journey in corporate entrepreneurship.

This forum aims to facilitate an in-depth discussion into innovative corporate-startup partnership approaches for corporates to reinvent and remain relevant amidst the disruption beyond simply setting up corporate venture capitals. The forum will be focusing on: –

• Strategic transformation for corporates in the Global Reset.

• Corporates’ strategic role in the startups and innovation ecosystem.

• Rethinking the startup ecosystem engagement strategy for maximising innovation capacity.

Many partnerships with startups look much better on paper than they are in reality. Unifying goals between the corporates and the startups is critical to determine the success of the collaboration. In this panel, our speakers will navigate with us on how to structure sustainable partnerships.

• How to set the right motives with startup collaborations?
• How to align the short-term goals with long-term decisions?
• How to justify the value-for-money in the partnerships?

In this interactive session, speakers and attendees will be pre-connected before the event and deep-dive into the key topics below. 6 attendees at each table to ensure maximum engagement and interaction.

Corporate-Startup Partnership is a two-way street. The responsibility of making the collaboration a successful one is not only on the corporates but also startups. For all startups founders & CEO, this means that before searching for corporates to partner with, you should identify the strategic objectives and how to make this partnership a
strategic fit.

• How should startups change the culture/infrastructure to make collaboration happen?

• How to maintain a trusting and transparent relationship with long-term goals and priorities?

After the 25-min mainstage discussion, participants will be divided into small groups to further discuss the topic with our speakers

The lack of entrepreneurial culture is often identified as a typical internal barrier within corporates that hinders the successful collaboration with startups and scale-ups.

• How to educate staff about the benefits of open innovation and the risk of skipping it?
• What are structural changes required to make corporates easier to work with startups to remove red tape and move things more quickly?

The ideal destination of a corporate-startup partnership is integrating the corporate's business infrastructure to deliver meaningful transformation. What must corporate leaders do to make it happen?

• What are the significant challenges in integrating a startups' technology into the core business infrastructure?
• How to validate the technology that will work within the organization?
