Event Description

MTB invites you to “Corporate Startup Collaboration”, an open event where we’re going to share our experience in Open Innovation

Open Innovation has been a fast growing trend in the last few years, in particular with its focus on corporate collaboration with startups and scaleups. This is now visible in every industry, where the rate of innovation is accelerating, and technological advancement is driven by multiple organizations, often lean and fast-moving startups. making it more difficult to keep the pace of innovation internally. Nonetheless, corporates can leverage the speed of the startups, and take advantage of their knowledge to complement their internal R&D processes.

During this event, we’re going to share real cases and trends that we have observed in open innovation activities from the leading corporates in the world.
