Growth of Corporate Accelerators

Powered by Qotuf

Corporations have seen the value in being more connected to innovation and startups in their industry. Corporate accelerator programs have produced a global worldwide investment of over 206.740 million dollars in 11,305 startups. From the mobile health industry (Sprint Accelerator) to the education space (Kaplan EdTech Accelerator), corporations have decided to operate their accelerators in three different ways: internally, (Wayra and Microsoft Ventures, and IKEA Forward), outsourced (Barclays, Kaplan, and Disney) or partnered (Citrix and Red Hat). Join our session to know more about cooperate accelerators and their role and to know more about the launch of one of the first cooperate accelerators in the region.
