Collaboration between startups and large organizations comes in diverse forms, from entrepreneurs' participation in accelerators - such as Citi's Basecamp TLV - to implementation of innovative technologies in large banks and even direct financial investments. These mutually beneficial relationships are common not only in the FinTech world, but also in other industry sectors such as Energy, Healthcare, Communications and Media.
The lecture will list the benefits of collaborations between large corporations and startups; describe the innate gaps between these two distinct types of organizations; and detail some strategies for making such relationships thrive, based on the speaker's experience with both large corporations and early stage ventures.
