The Chairman’s Network Round Table –Innovation and Invention: Outsourcing Innovation to Tech Startups

Innovation and Invention: Outsourcing Innovation to Tech Startups

Innovating is risky and expensive. Yet, thousands of startups - funded by venture capital - are experimenting with new technologies and business models. Picking only the best startup inventions allows the businesses to outsource the risk of innovation - trial new ideas, innovate cheaply and quickly - and through acquisitions, strengthen their competitiveness. This round table discusses successful mergers of companies and startups, how to reap the benefits and how to avoid mistakes stemming from the startup and corporate culture. 

Heikki, has a unique view from both sides. At the board level, Heikki has participated both acquiring startups, and being a founder of startups that have been acquired. His most recent startup was acquired by Rakuten, the world’s fifth largest e-commerce company.

Heikki is currently Chairman at The Future of Retail Organisation and has an advisory role at The Exit Academy.

 

Presentation, Q&A, and discussion afterwards.
