There’s no doubt that corporates and entrepreneurs have different risk appetites, and different ways of resourcing innovation. Corporates and entrepreneurs often speak a different language, and each brings different strengths to the table.
Jenny Vandyke is an innovation consultant and the author of The Innovation Recipe, which is based on more than 10 years' senior experience on major innovation projects with Australia’s largest companies, including National Australia Bank, BHP Billiton and KPMG. Jenny also provides innovation advice to numerous start ups and SME’s, and is a judge for the Anthill Magazine Smart 100 Awards, judging the most innovative products in Australia.
‘I see the same innovation mistakes made in businesses of all shapes and sizes, and the same key ingredients to translate ideas into results.'  
In this short, sharp two-hour workshop we’ll look at:
  • How corporates can work with entrepreneurs to increase innovation (drawing on real-world case studies of corporate collaborations from around Australia 
  • Key differences when innovating in a corporate versus a start up (and the common ingredients for innovation for businesses of all shapes and sizes 
  • How to apply entrepreneurial strategies to corporate innovation
'I believe there has never been a better time for corporates and entrepreneurs to collaborate.'
