Why Co-creation between big Corporates and Startups Is A Good Way To Innovate?

  1. startups are more flexible to change. Big corporates are more structured and resistant to change.
  2. startups are more bearable to the consequences of failure, but the same failure can ruin the brand name and good will of big corporates.
  3. startups lack resources, funding, technical support, networks, experience, etc. Big corporates in general have much more resources, funding, technical support and networks, experience, etc.
  4. Any people with innovative ideas can set up their own startups, as the entry barrier is low. In contrast, staff and management in big corporates have little incentives to innovate or to take risk, if they are receiving good pays.

  2. Acquisitions — big corporates acquire startups with potential innovative ideas. It sounds like buying unicorns in the stock markets.
