Innovation: Why Large Companies Need Startups (and vice versa)"
has once again become possible to finance new ventures, conditions that
we haven't seen since early 2001. There is a big difference this time
around, though. Then, all the new startups were going to disintermediate
the "dinosaurs". This time, ventures are hungry to work with
them. The good news is that large companies are hungry to work with
startups as well. Professor Chesbrough will present a model of corporate
innovation, called Open Innovation, that articulates the ground rules
for engagement between ventures and established firms."
