The topic of our Gründerstammtisch (Founders’ Roundtable) on June 2 is: Startups in cooperation with corporates – what does it actually look like in practice?
Learn from the insights of practitioners on the topic of startups in collaboration with corporates and exchange digital ideas with other founders and experts! The insights on what you should pay attention to as a startup, so that a desired cooperation with established companies, such as corporates and large medium-sized companies, becomes successful, are certainly exciting. Discussion and networking is encouraged, as with any startup roundtable.
June, 2 – “open doors: 18:45” – Start: 19:00

A popular narrative among administrations, politicians, associations, academics and consultants describes the great potential that lies in the collaboration between corporates and startups. Here, it is often said, the advantages of both worlds can be combined in many ways. This is a perspective, or rather a way of presenting things, that is also popular in the Rhine-Ruhr region. This is not particularly surprising, since there are some exciting industries here with corporates and large medium-sized companies. Companies that are often dependent on the innovation push from outside not only because of their difficulties with digitization and hardly relevant digital business models. The extent to which this calculation also works for external startups will be one of the points we want to examine at the 93rd StartupDorf Gründerstammtisch (Founders’ Roundtable) on the topic of “Startups in collaboration with corporates”.
What can founders expect from this session?
Exciting insights on what you should pay attention to as a startup so that an intended collaboration with established companies, such as corporates and large medium-sized companies, becomes successful.
Dr. Tilman Sauter from Evonik Creavis, who takes the corporate perspective and Thomas Hollwedel, who contributes some case studies from his startup practice, which also show that the “great potential of collaboration” and the “lived practice” are often further apart than one expects as a founder:in.
The speakers and the StartupDorf:
Thomas Hollwedel has been active as a member of the StartupDorf for several years via the member startup aconno GmbH, as has our supporting member EVONIC Creavis, which is represented by Dr. Tilman Sauter.
The insights on the topic of “Startups in collaboration with corporates” will be complemented by the hosts of the evening Hanns Tappen and Dr. Fabian Braun.
