The Corona crisis and the associated changes appear to be accelerating transformation projects of many companies. Driven by the high dynamics in the markets and new disruptive competitors, established companies have to prove their speed of innovation more than ever before.
But not only since Clayton M. Christensen`s book "The Innovator's Dilemma" is it known how difficult it is for traditional companies to reshape their future.
For some years now, the establishment of new, separately operating subsidiaries ("corporate startups") has been a successful approach for many corporations, but also for medium-sized companies. In some cases, startups are "produced" in corporate incubators as if on an assembly line - at least in theory.
But what is easily explained on PowerPoint slides for the board of directors becomes a Herculean task, especially when it comes to implementation. Especially when the company lacks the necessary experience. The goal of combining the best of both worlds - the agility and courage of a startup with the experience and resources of a corporation - is often missed.

In a joint online session with our cooperation partner Excubate, we would like to provide an insight into this enormously important field of action. The topics of brand architecture & branding are on the agenda as well as insights into individual corporate startups and common excubation models.
