Financial services need to innovate to stay ahead of the curve. One of the lowest cost ways to do this is by collaborating with startups. Startups can help shortcut the internal innovation process if you work with the right startup in the right way. The benefits of collaborating with startups include cost savings, unrestricted thinking and access to talent, services and products outside the organisation. But for this to succeed, companies need to be ‘startup ready’. All too often companies and startups assume they are and then fail. Join us to hear real-life stories, of what’s worked, and what hasn’t – as well as the different perspectives from heads of operations, I.T., procurement, legal, finance and innovation.
