Enterprise Tuesday ( please see contact below )

With guest panellists Robert Tansley, Investor at CIC , Anna Williamson of Genentech, Shaun Grady of AstraZeneca, and Sir Greg Winter

This session will offer key take-aways for anyone interested in collaborative corporate-entrepreneurship partnerships. When, why and how can they deliver value? More specifically, our speakers will share their experience of collaboration and how the pathway might be mapped out. We will hear different perspectives. What is the investor’s take on this? How might the experience be different for the organisation and for the individual? What kind of mindset and business culture is required to grasp the opportunities and process the challenges? Our speakers will illustrate how negotiation and the leveraging of networks can lead to mutual benefits without necessarily having a predetermined structure. We will also hear about what it takes to develop a culture that encourages new ideas and provides support. De-risking and increasing capacity can become real possibilities if you work together. What counts in this context may not be the obvious nor is it necessarily predetermined. What does it take to be open to disruption, appreciate the alignments of interest and see the long-term gains?
