Event Details

Why a Corporate Accelerator program?

The average company lifespan has dropped from 60 in the mid-20th Century to just 12 years today, due to increasing waves of technology disruption and lower barriers to entry for new players.

Almost every industry is going to face untold upheaval over the next decade due to the proliferation and convergence of AI, automation, blockchain, cloud, IoT, big data and more. 

The challenge for most incumbents is that their organisations have been built to deliver on existing business models, not necessarily discover new ones, and reorganising the organisation around these new objectives, without compromising the core business, is a Herculean task, and a marathon rather than a sprint. 

This is why investment into startups from corporate venture capital (CVC) arms has skyrocketed in recent years. In 2017 alone, CVC activity reached a new high with US$1.8 trillion being poured into startups. In addition to merely investing in startups, a growing number of companies are establishing industry-aligned accelerator programs to actively work with startups.

This includes organisations like Microsoft, Airbus, BNP Paribas, Citigroup, Citrix, Deloitte, Barclays, Village Digital, Charter Hall, EY, IBM, Google, ING Group, Mastercard, Mondelez, Qualcomm, Telefonica, Telstra, Unilever and numerous others.  

Tune in to this webinar to hear from Steve Glaveski, Collective Campus CEO, on the what, why and how of corporate startup accelerator programs.

  • What a corporate accelerator program is
