Workshop E

Corporate Innovation & Venture Capital

Jens Baumgärtner & Simon Math, HTGF Investment Managers

Established and successful companies are often limited in their own innovation capability. Searching for innovation they are confronted with the world of the start-ups where different views and ideas collide. This workshop aims to improve the understanding of the other side and to make both worlds accessible to each other.
