[nz_gap height=”25″ /]

Innovation happens when connecting previously unconnected bodies of knowledge. Imagine all the exciting things that could happen in the collaboration between large established companies, and the startup scene! It’s time to create successful powercouples. 


These collaborations can create huge opportunities for everyone involved. But a strong and thriving powercouple takes a lot of work, communication and understanding from both parties.

Startup are used to knocking on a lot of doors. At this StartUp Day the tables have turned: Four established companies are pitching potential partnerships to a panel of startups. What can they offer in a power couple? And why should startups even consider working with them? The companies are looking for entrepreneurs working with technology, logistics, production, HR, distribution, and many other relevant fields.

Discussion and Q&A lead by Jonas Tesfu.
