Vareska van de Vrande
Professor of Collaborative Innovation and Business Venturing – RSM
The webinar is part of the CVN/Klever program on Collaborative Discovery. During May-June, 22 corporate CVN members explore 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.
Professor Van de Vrande will discuss with you the critical success factors for corporate-startup collaborations. She will also share some initial results from a survey we have sent out to the participants of the CVN/Klever program on the decision-making process of working with start-ups.
If you also like to participate in the survey, follow this link to the survey: Take the Survey.
