Denmark is home to numerous skilled and well-established companies that, over many decades, have built a unique industry insight, customer portfolio, and economic drive. Today, all companies are aware that innovation is essential for development and for staying relevant in the market. However, only a few have recognised the opportunities that lie in innovating in collaboration with startups. Even fewer have cracked the code to activate their resources in such collaborations. It's unfortunate and a huge untapped potential.

Internationally, many established companies integrate effective corporate venture functions, providing them with market insight, opportunities for product innovation, scouting for acquisition possibilities, and investing for capital increase. Additionally, startups bring an agile working approach to the table, which can be valuable for these companies.

This webinar will enlighten you on the opportunities that lie within a collaboration with startups, how to initiate such collaborations, and what to be aware of.

The webinar is for you:

You are probably a business leader, or you work with business development, innovation, digitalization, sustainability or similar areas in your organization, and are curious about how startups can contribute to solving the problems that your company is facing.
