Leadership models: Corporate vs Startup – Bridging the gap

A new reality that many corporate businesses now face in a market filled with disruptors and innovation is moving with the agility of a startup and being proactive or at least reactive to market situations. On the flipside, how can a startup scale up without losing that freedom of movement? More importantly, what can they learn from each other? 

About the event

This session will look at the mind-set of both types of business, discussing the freedoms and restraints that challenge the way they operate at C-level and beyond; looking to define a clear route to bridge the gap between both mentalities and actual realities. Our interactive briefing session will be hosted by a panel of industry thought leaders who will discuss some key questions and perspectives;

• “People want to work for start ups”. Is this true? What is appealing? What are the downsides?
• How can corporates/ more traditional businesses recreate the positives?
• What can startups and corporates learn from each other?
• How do you bridge the gap? What is the role of M&A / minority investments / accelerators / or other collaboration?
• How do you define strategic agenda at a start-up or corporate to deliver the most effective model and maximum returns?
