Webinar Prof. Vareska van de Vrande on Return on Collaboration

In this webinar, Professor Vareksa van de Vrande will discuss with you the critical success factors for corporate-startup collaborations



The webinar is part of the CVN/Klever program on Collaborative Discovery. During May-June, 22 corporate CVN members explored a new way to discover global startups and scale-ups by making use of the Klever platform and its KLEVER Decision Rooms – virtual workspaces to make strategic decisions collaboratively. However, discovering the best-fit solution is only the first step toward successful collaboration.

Based on data collected from 43 startups and 45 corporates, Professor Van de Vrande discussed with the participants the critical success factors for corporate-startup collaborations. She also shared some initial results from a survey we had sent out to the participants of the CVN/Klever program on the decision-making process of working with start-ups.
