LOCALZ

Martin Verbree DIRECTOR OF EUROPE at LOCALZ talking about:

BREAKING THE PERMAFROST – HOW STARTUPS CAN SELL TO ENTERPRISE

Large enterprise companies have worked out that rather than compete with more nimble, disruptive start up companies they should partner with or purchase services from them. Start ups also see that corporates can bring them much desired distribution scale and revenue. And yet there are very few success stories and many, many cases of failure. The presentation shared some of the tactics for both enterprise and start ups to succeed.

I HEART STUDIOS

Next on stage was Sjors Bos MD at I HEART STUDIOS, presenting CREATIVE DISRUPTION

In the fast moving world of fashion/lifestyle there is constant demand for innovation. The digital photography industry was slow moving, not focused on the industry demand and working with operating models pre-existent to the digital age.The presentation talked about a company born in the digital age, focusing on the continuous need for re-invention and who is supplying digital excellence (service/added value/content generation) within a highly demanding industry. The presentation will focus on the challenges of a start-up with a fresh mind-set and ethos, focused on customer value, operating in a traditional industry.
