In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.In today’s episode, we look at  the “why,” “how,” and “where” of corporate-startup partnering, and asking is there a strategic framework that large companies can apply towards achieving successful partnerships and collaborations with startups?To help me in this quest, I am really pleased to have as our guest Shameen Prashantham(Professor of International Business and Strategy at the China Europe International Business and Author of a great new book called Gorillas can Dance, which offers large corporations a guide to partnering and collaborating with startups).

Host: Ken Valledy (Partner/Co-founder at Progressive)Progressive helps organisations unlock and commercialise new growth opportunities more rapidly than their competition and more effectively than traditional innovation programmes.The Catalysts Podcast focuses on the key benefits of corporates and startups working together and how these partnerships can become a catalyst for change for the future. In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.In today’s episode, we look into a subject that has been long overdue on this podcast and that is the role of the Agency in helping to bring corporates and start-ups together. At one time and in some circles, the agency was known (along with corporates and start-ups) as the 3rd leg of the stall, an invaluable player in delivering successful corporate/startup partnerships. However, this role has struggled to define itself over the years, with the role of many agencies now being sometimes misunderstood, sometimes mis-under-appreciated and sometimes not even considered. So what is the role of the agency, what unique skills can they bring to the table and what needs to be done to bring the agency back into the discussion?To help me in this quest, I am really pleased to have as our guest Jim Kite, former Global Head of NextTechNow and Global Partnerships at Publicis Media and now founder of Tech Pilot Limited, a company that helps agencies and corporates on how to commercially position early stage innovation, from initial tests to long term relationships.

In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.In today’s episode, I want to address the area of Corporate Accelerators, where a large corporation creates it’s own Accelerator Programme, usually with the support of an established Accelerator Partner.. Are they worthwhile? Is this the best platform to create a successful corporate / start-up partnership? What should you look for as a start-up if you want to join one? What should you look for as a Corporate if you want to create one? To help me in this quest, I am really pleased to have as our guest Veronique Merriam Barbosa. Co-Founder at Flux , an award winning startup technology that enables itemised digital receipts to be delivered straight to your banking app.  We discuss many subjects inc Veronique's experiences at the Barclays RISE Accelerator, what makes a good and bad Corporate Accelerator Programme and why Corporate Accelerators aren't the right option for everyone.Veronique's contact details:Website: https://www.tryflux.com/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/veronique-merriam-barbosa-43219b27/To find out more about Progressive, please contact us on:Email: Ken@thisisprogressive.comWebsite:  https://www.thisisprogressive.comLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/18066213/admin/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Progressive_HQ

In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.In today’s episode, I look into the area of dedicated ‘tech communities', where start-ups and corporates are based together for an ongoing indefinite period’. Are these communities a better option towards building start-up/corporate partnership vs the traditional accelerator or corporate accelerator programmes or are they an expensive PR façade with no real tangible output at the end?    To help me on this subject, I am really pleased to have as our guest Amy French (Director: Level39, London), the world's most connected community for finance, cybersecurity, retail and smart-city technology businesses).  We discuss many subjects inc ''how best to manage the expectation of both the corporates and start-ups involved in these communities' and 'what is the secret ingredient behind successful start-up/corporate partnerships'Amy's contact details:Twitter : https://twitter.com/French04ALinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/amy-french-26157339/To find out more about Progressive, please contact us on:Email: Ken@thisisprogressive.comWebsite:  https://www.thisisprogressive.comLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/18066213/admin/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Progressive_HQ

In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.In today’s episode, I want to focus on the whole area of corporate culture and how it can help and hinder large corporations who are looking to deliver a successful Innovation strategy. To help me in today’s episode, I am really pleased to have as my guest Elvin Turner who is a Bestselling corporate innovation author and advisor. His recent book ‘Be less Zombie’ has been described by Simon Collins, Senior Vice President, Mastercard as…. “A must-read for anyone - in any business sector, at any career level - who is passionate about the serious business of innovation. A practical guide to curating a culture of innovation and navigating against the headwinds of organisational status quo.” Elvin and I discuss many topics, including, what are the tell tale signs that corporate culture isn't right for Innovation in an organisation?  Why working with start-ups is crucial to making a corporation more Innovation focussed? What is the key first step that a corporation should take towards creating and sustaining an innovative culture and subsequently, becoming less Zombie like?Elvin's contact details:Twitter : https://twitter.com/elvinturner LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/elvint/To find out more about Progressive, please contact us on:Email: Ken@thisisprogressive.comWebsite:  https://www.thisisprogressive.comLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/18066213/admin/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Progressive_HQ

In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.In today’s episode, I want to focus on an area that is crucial towards a successful corporate /startup partnership and that is the importance (for a startup) to identify and be very clear on their value proposition. Lots of great opportunities are lost between a startup and a corporate because from the first initial meeting, the start-up isn’t clear in defining the value that they can bring to the table. To help me in this quest, I am really pleased to have as my guest Naomi Timperley who is a Growth and Innovation Consultant with GSI and Co founder of Tech North Advocates. We cover many questions, including Why the Value proposition is so crucial and why it can be very difficult to articulate. The pitfalls of not nailing your Value proposition and   the role that corporates can play when assessing a startups proposition and Roadmap vision.Naomi's contact details:Twitter :  https://twitter.com/naomitimperley LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/naomitimperley To find out more about Progressive, please contact us on:Email: Ken@thisisprogressive.comWebsite:  https://www.thisisprogressive.comLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/18066213/admin/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Progressive_HQ

In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.In today’s episode, I want to address the topic of Free Trials, are they a viable option to quickly ‘open the door’ and kick off a partnership with a corporate client or are they a recipe for failure leading to lack of commitment from a corporate who has no ‘skin in the game’  To help me in today’s episode, I am really pleased to have as my guest James Edwards (Digital Innovation Lead EMEA at Kimberly-Clark).  We cover many questions including, what are the advantages and disadvantages of offering a free trial? Are they just an easy way of avoiding getting into a price negotiation? Shouldn't  large corporations just pay startups for their services anyway?James' contact details:James: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jim-edwards/To find out more about Progressive, please contact us on:Email: Ken@thisisprogressive.comWebsite:  https://www.thisisprogressive.comLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/18066213/admin/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Progressive_HQ

In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.In today’s episode, I want to address one of the big ‘elephants in the room’ within large corporations and that is how to make Innovation work (with start-ups). Within large corporations, Innovation seems to open up a ‘Pandora’s Box’ of questions - what does Innovation mean, who is responsible, what can it deliver, what can’t it deliver, what are the key factors to be considered etc and the questions go on. So what does successful Innovation look like in some of the world’s leading corporations? To help me in this quest, I am really pleased to have as our guest Andrew Backs, Founder and Chief Innovation Strategist at Pilot44, a SF based company that revolutionizes the way big companies (like P&G, Nestle and Sanofi to name but a few) innovate and grow.  Andrew and I discuss many areas, including the many 'waves' of corporate innovation and what the '3rd Wave' could look like in a few years time.Andrew's contact details:Email: andrew@pilot44.comWebsite: https://www.pilot44.com/LinkedIn page: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrewbacks/To find out more about Progressive, please contact us on:Email: Ken@thisisprogressive.comWebsite:  https://www.thisisprogressive.comLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/18066213/admin/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Progressive_HQ

In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.In today’s episode, we address the area of international expansion, with a special focus on expansion to the US. There are already numerous podcasts out there that focus on the financial side of expansion, but this episode focuses  on the not so ‘discussed’ area of the culture aspects that have to considered when looking to move into other markets. To help me in this quest, I am really pleased to have as our guest Dan Glazer, who is London Office Managing Partner at Wilson Sonsini, the premier provider of legal services to European companies who want to expand their business to the US.  We discuss many subjects including; the differing corporate cultures across America, how America has a different view of the working week and key considerations when pitching for new business in America.Dan's contact details:Website: https://www.wsgr.com/en/LinkedIn page: https://www.linkedin.com/in/danielcglazer/#To find out more about Progressive, please contact us on:Email: Ken@thisisprogressive.comWebsite:  https://www.thisisprogressive.comLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/18066213/admin/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Progressive_HQ

What does a good brief look like? How can expectations from both sides be managed from the start? Are briefs too prescriptive vs being a starting point of a discussion? Does the brief get the time and the focus that it deserves? These are some of the many questions that we will be discussing with our guest Elise Jackson (CEO: This is Unicorn), who has worked on many briefs with numerous clients of all sizes.
