Alberto Onetti, Chairman of Mind the Bridge, sits down with Philipp Rose, Managing Director of Robert Bosch Venture Capital (RBVC) for a fireside chat on whether Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) can really support companies in executing Open Innovation.
Italian companies are increasingly looking at startups in order to narrowing the gap with the rest of Europe, according to the “Open Innovation Outlook: Italy 2019” realized by Mind the Bridge with the support of SMAU.
Innovation is key to sustained corporate success. Innovative firms grow twice as fast, both in employment and sales, compared to firms that fail to innovate. However, European and Italian companies invest less on innovation than their international competitors. Startup-corporate collaboration could help corporates to innovate and grow as well as help startups to get customers and turn into larger entities.
