Join Yaniv for a conversation with Jenny Wu and Roland Osborne from 500 Startups about how to run successful experiments with startups. 500 Startups believes that following a crisis like that of 2020, doubling down on innovation through startup collaboration is more important than ever. However, these initiatives must be structured and executed with expert care and diligence to minimize waste and for corporates to maintain their reputation in the startup ecosystem. 500 Startups has recently published a report titled "Startup-Corporate Experiments: Finding Success with Proof-of-Concepts." In this report, 500 set out to interview a selection of twelve prominent innovation practitioners from a range of industries to see how internal stewards of innovation are trying to make it happen and what best practices they might share with their peers. In this episode, Yaniv, Jenny and Roland discuss the report. Jenny and Roland give us a primer on running POCs (or Proof-of-Concept), reveal surprising insights gleaned from their corporate clients, and share a few challenges and ways to overcome them. It's an episode full of practical and tactical information for any company thinking about or already running POCs with startups. Download the full report here.
