Course description

How can startups help established companies to innovate?
What are the mutual benefits when large companies collaborate with startups?

The future seems to be unknowable and unmeasurable, whilst the business environment has become more and more complex and uncertain. Therefore, innovation has become a precondition of business survival. Future-oriented corporations are creating opportunities and co-operating with fast, creative startups to jointly disrupt whole industries. Corporations’ interest towards startup collaboration has reached a new level due to the digital transformation. Research results have also shown that collaboration with startups affects positively corporations’ business transformation.

However, only a few companies utilise fully this collaboration potential. This MOOC will guide you on the path towards a mutually beneficial collaboration, both from the perspective of corporates and startups.

After course completition you can follow up in another MOOC: Co-innovating in Practice
