Innovate Together! – How Lantmännen Collaborates with Startups and Entrepreneurs

13:45 - 14:20

How can a successful platform for collaborations between a large corporation and small startups be designed? This was a question Lantmännen wanted to solve back in 2014. As a result, Lantmännen Greenhouse was created, an educational program for those who want support in developing an innovative business idea into a profitable business. The program is open for both intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs to participate in, and consists of a number of workshops that blends theory with practice. During our talk we will discuss among other things:
- Setting up a platform for collaborations between a large corporation and small startups
- The ecosystem of the innovation area, giving and taking from the large corporation view
- Successes and pitfalls, what we have learned so far
