Corporate Goes Agile at FEI 2016: Corporate/Startup Partnerships

Share this article

Large organizations are under fire to be more agile- but
that's easier said than done for an innovation team entrenched by bureaucracies
and red tape.

FEI 2016 is here to help by bringing you a jam packed itinerary live from the
head office of MassChallenge Accerator, where you'll experience
corporate/startup partnerships in action, followed by a special startup mixer
with corporate innovation leaders and MassChallenge Alumni startups.

Building a Startup Environment In-House:
Corporate Goes Agile

Iterating on the model forged by independent accelerators
and incubators, leading corporate innovation units have built working
environments structured to accelerate the growth of internal product teams and
external startups. Learn how 5 corporate innovation leaders changed the culture
of their organizations through physical, strategic, and programmatic
engineering.
