What relations exist between start-ups and big companies?

30 Jun, 2016 03:44 pm
All large companies are concerned, whatever their sector of activity. In order to not become "Uberised", they have to instil a culture of innovation and adopt start-up methods internally.

Their digital transformation plan will inevitably have an open innovation dimension to it. This can take different forms, from hackathons to raising capital, not to mention mentoring, incubation, spin-off companies or the setting up of accelerators.

Some large groups go as far as taking over start-ups, such as Crédit Mutuel Arkéa which acquired the fintech company Leetchi.

Companies like Société Générale, on the other hand, prefer to simply increase links between their employees and the digital ecosystem.
