"How do I collaborate with startups?" This is the euphemistic way of corporates asking "How do I manage the competitive threat from the startups?" Well, obviously incumbent corporates think startups are the holy grail of innovation and would want to ride the wave of innovation rather than being washed over!

This talk will focus on the need for the corporates to truly collaborate with startups, framework for collaboration and more especially focus on the how to derive the intangible benefits that could potentially change the culture of the corporates.

    Hi Pradeep,

    Thank you for your proposal. I think it can be improved by clearly stating some of the key takeaways of the presentation in the abstract. Don't be afraid to give away your whole talk in the abstract. Also the session would be more attractive if you could share some experience rather than just talk about the subject in general. Can you share experience of startup and corporate collaboration? If yes, please include it in the abstract.
