Session Description: Pilot44 & Silicon Valley Bank are co-hosting a session about closing the innovation divide between startups and brands. We will be discussing techniques that both corporations and startups can leverage in order to work more effectively with one another. Continuous digital innovation is essential to engaging today’s consumers & creating competitive advantage and existing accelerator & “tech tourism” models do not go far enough in delivering tangible innovation outcomes. We will discuss how actionable knowledge is best achieved through a direct connection with entrepreneurs and hands-on pilots. Snacks & Refreshments will be provided!
