Startup Grind Beijing Presents
Being an entrepreneur is often about making decisions that can affect the startup's success or failure. Whether your startup is at the early idea stage or a well-established company, entrepreneurs are often challenged with difficult questions. One of the most frequent questions is about whether to be a solo player on this journey or to enlist the support and collaboration of big or small companies and corporations.
This collaboration opens up a wide pool of possibilities, but at the same time, it might bring some hidden threats with it. In order to help young entrepreneurs have a peek behind the curtains of a startup and corporate collaboration, we have invited an expert focusing on scouting startups for the automotive industry.
You will learn about:
How big corporates find the right startups to support?
What are the features startups need to have to get corporate support?
What are the potential risks for startups collaborating with corporates?
What are upcoming trends in the automotive industry?
