Break Out: Spin Out Confessions – CIC

January 19, 2017, 17:30 - 18:15

Many corporates in the Netherlands are ahead of the game when it comes to spinning out startups. Pioneers like Philips have built successful models of developing innovations in house, and then letting them grow into their own thriving entities.

But there are still struggles, and it can get messy. Salim Ismail, former head of Yahoo’s incubator Brick House and co-author of Exponential Organizations likes innovation inside a corporate to a virus inside of a host – a threat that, to protect itself, the host often tries to squash.

So what’s the secret to spinning out startups successfully? What can we learn from the battle wounds, stresses, and struggles on both the corporate and the startup side? Join us for a lively panel in which we’ll hear from both sides what’s it’s really like to spin out.

This session is an encore performance from this year’s How To Get There Summit in the Hague.
