Cooperation of the big and startups
18. april, 2017, at 19:05 /KID KIBLA
The world of startups and the world of "Big players" seemed mutually exclusive
until recently, however, in recent times there is a trend where big well-established companies want to co-operate with startups. In this way they want to increase their innovation activities and keep the leading position on the market. From partnerships like this, startups usually gain sales channels and international markets, common PR and "co-branding". Both will get advantages from these kinds of partnerships.
Are you interested in knowing what these benefits are, how small and big companies cooperate, how to establish the first contact and who can help you with this?
At this Start:up Müsli, we will host Jernej Močnik from Nova KBM, that will present the arguments of the big for cooperating with startups and Luka Topolovec from EqualEyes, as a representative of a startup, that is successfully partnering with Nova KBM.
Do you also wish to cooperate with the big companies? Then you cannot miss Tuesday's meeting.
After the event, we will also present opportunities that are available to you within the Digitrans project (digital transformation in the Danube region), which works on digital transformation in companies. The digital revolution doesn’t only influence production activities but also other sectors, such as services and trade. The goal of this project is to encourage small and medium-sized companies to define and apply their own digital business model.
After the official part, there will be an informal networking.
