Everybody dreams of that perfect partnership, that, "Here I am, signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours!" partner.

In reality, finding a good match between startups and corporations requires quite a bit in expectation management, product and strategic alignment, and --of course-- good communication.

This talk will feature a talk from one startup and one corporate on some of the challenges and benefits with these kinds of partnerships. We'll conclude the session with a moderated panel, bringing on a few more corporates and startups to get into the nitty-gritty of how to make these collaborations, partnerships, and/or investments work.
