  • Why corporates and startups need to engage more

      Startups are at the cutting edge of technology and innovation. Like David, they start with the premise that they can be crushed easily so they have to stay nimble footed and think crazy new solutions to get ahead. In the process they develop new technology, redefine business models, throw out the books on corporate strategy and write their own leaflets. Yet they remain fragile and need the right partnership to grow quickly.

      On the other hand, corporations become large because they know how too. They have physical strengths in their business network, customer base, brand appeal and ability manage complexity. But their size makes them slow and outdated in the modern economy.


      By exchanging notes, startups as well as corporates can benefit from new ideas that they can implement in their own businesses.

          Large companies have processes that allow them to build and sustain brands. But they also have large budgets. While this helps build strong brands, can startups teach corporates a thing or two about disrupting brand building.


          Startups innovate on how they build brands. While innovation and creativity is cost and time efficient, what can startups learn from corporates on how to replicate innovation at scale.
