Presented by Bridge Bank

Corporate innovation is sometimes more theater than reality, resulting in bad investments and firing entire leadership teams. This panel will discuss various models, from classical entrepreneurship and joint ventures to the more cutting-edge Venture Builder and VC partnership models. Attendees of this session can expect to hear case studies and lessons learned about what works and what hasn't to help them determine which models or partnerships work best in their environment.
