Venturing with start-ups is a somewhat ambiguous term.
Some mean one-off promotional events to foster an entrepreneurial culture.
Others suggest new product development, including equity investment, to complement R&D.

We group start-up collaboration in three categories based on the desired time to impact and engagement intensity.
