My last keynote with the FabMob program, during a private event involving selected startups and industrials at Autonomy 2016 in Paris today. The idea was to discuss how corporate incubation end-of-party is coming quickly to Europe and illustrate the five most prevalent impediments that corporations have to overcome to engage further partnerships with startups.
The key roadblocks we discussed were:
- Sunk costs paralysis
- Solution blindness
- Stop-gate compulsion
- Cycle of life toxicity
- Intrapreneurs fatigue
You can read this as an extension to my last article on how startups should decide to apply (or not) to a corporate incubation program.
