Ever heard of “innovation scouting”? Or came across “innovation labs” set up by various big corporations? What’s beyond painting the office walls with bright colors and having a ping-pong table? As a startup founder, how do you fit into the overall “innovation ecosystem”?
We are thrilled to work with our awesome partner MOX again! Marwan Mazaraani from Anchor Taiwan’s Winter 2017 cohort will dissect “corporate innovation” so you know how to benefit from or work around it. Formally in charge of Telco 2.0 evolution and innovation scouting at Deutsche Telekom, Marwan sailed from Munich, Germany with 20 years of experience deploying technology business solutions globally. He will walk us through how companies interact with innovation, share successful utilization models, and why many initiatives fail at the complexity of human interactions.
As usual, come join us for an evening of insights, great conversations and free-flow beer + Churchill sausages!
