Agenda Highlights

Deep Tech Ecosystems: Talent, Capital & Innovation

Masterclass: Building an Excellent Venture Client Unit

It’s no secret that startups have been the birthplace of revolutionary technologies, from pioneering web browsers to next-generation databases and AI applications like Open AI’s Chat GPT. However, for too long,
incumbent companies have struggled to fully harness the power of startups. Traditional Corporate Venturing models have fallen short of enabling the entire organization to benefit from many top startups quickly and at low cost and risk.
That’s why many corporations are adopting a new model. With a Venture Client Unit, any company can benefit strategically from the world’s best startup technologies at groundbreaking speed and across the entire value chain! But what does it take to establish Venture Client Excellence?

Led by 27pilots, the founders of the Venture Client model.

Innovation Policies: Make or Break?

By collaborating with your alumni on multiple occasions, you can amplify your impact and create a dynamic, mutually beneficial relationship.
