The key to speed innovation
But innovating isn’t easy: lack of R&D budget, lack of long-term strategic innovation vision or dedicated resources are common pitfalls,...
Collaborating with and investing in young and agile startups and scale-ups can provide quick access to new technologies, accelerate time to market for new services and products, increase knowledge of upcoming global trends and shifting consumer behaviour, and solve inefficiencies.
Sounds easy, right? But as a large organisation collaborating with startups and scale-ups isn’t always as straightforward as it may seem. You need to be ready or be able to re-focus.
Especially in uncertain times, corporates are (or at least should be) constantly looking to reinvent and reorganise themselves for the better.

Before you dive in head first, take the time to take a few steps back. How ready is your company to collaborate with a startup? Or are you mainly interested in re-evaluating the current collaboration?
We can help you assess your readiness or current collaboration and indicate which areas your organisation could improve how you collaborate, focusing on strategy, communication and organisation.
With our Scale+ programme, we bring together selected, cutting edge technology startups and large organisations to foster innovation, enable co-creation and solve important problems. Using our established network of experts, leading start-ups, and advisory specialists, we make innovation simple, cost effective and repeatable.
