  • Are you opening up your business to startups?


    Would you like to get more strategic focus and better results?


    Are you seeking tools and best practices?

    On 28 March, Scoutely will run a compact one-day Executive Training, sharing methods, tools and the latest insights into what happens in successful collaborations.


    This training is specifically developed for senior managers who direct the innovation strategy, and the engagement with startups in particular. More activity around startups leads to more dilemmas, is what we hear.


    Topics that will be addressed:

    • What can you realistically expect as outcomes from collaborations? 
    • What different collaboration models should you use for what particular goals?
    • How do you connect with startups efficiently, and how do you create and manage expectations? 
    • Who in your organization needs to be involved, and how do you ensure they will be?

    The sessions have been designed and will be delivered by Sander van der Blonk, Jörgen Sandig and Jan Paul Grollé, tapping into decades of executive, entrepreneurial and academic experience with innovation in corporates and startups.


    What you will get from attending:

    • Structured approach to recruiting startups and building partnerships that are mutually beneficial
    • Insights backed by both science and hands-on practice
    • Meeting professionals striving toward your same objectives
    • Access to all materials, models and approaches, to apply in your own organization
    • A certificate that proves you have completed the training

    The training will be hosted at the Rotterdam School of Management, at the campus of Erasmus University, easily reachable by public transport and car.


    To ensure optimal interaction, we will keep the number of participants limited. Reserve now, and be ensured of your seat. Your ticket is refundable until 7 days before the training.
