Our Deep Dive will begin with a morning workshop on Systems Thinking followed by a startup deal flow in the afternoon. The morning session will include an introduction to Systems Thinking through the lens of sustainable innovation, followed by an interactive mapping of innovation stakeholders. The goal of the morning workshop is to better identify and communicate the success metrics within a corporate-startup engagement. The afternoon will include quick pitches and one to ones with startups pre-selected by Anchor Partners.
Schedule is subject to slight change*
