  • Corporate-Startup Collaborations:
    There is currently an increase in corporate venture capital, accelerator programmes and collaborations between startups and already established corporations. Such collaborations can bring startups access to the knowledge, resources and expertise of corporations, while corporations can gain from the innovation and flexibility of startups. However, there are challenges related to differences in organisational cultures, approaches to risk and decisions that need to be taken into account to succeed in such collaborations.
  • Regulation of startups:
    The development of startups often encounters regulatory challenges, such as technology industry regulations, data protection or funding. It is crucial to find the right balance that allows startups to grow while ensuring security, transparency and fairness in the operation of these businesses.
