The Startup Mindset: Mice Dancing with the Elephants

October 4, 2016 by Bonnie D. Graham 14

The buzz: “At The Hop” (Danny and the Juniors song, 1957).

With the right music, startups and large enterprises can enjoy a mutually beneficial dance – even as industries are being disrupted.

How?

Enterprises can gain innovation faster from startups rather than on their own; identify and invest early in the right startups on reasonable terms and help them grow; collaborate with startups to redefine mature and slow-to-adapt industries.

Music, please!

The experts speak.

Frantisek “Frank” Vrabel, Semantic Visions: “Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.” (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)

Bastian Nominacher, Celonis: “People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” (Steve Jobs)

Maria Luisa Silva, SAP: “It is not the strongest of the species or the most intelligent who will survive but the one most responsive to change.” (Charles Darwin, Prof. Leon C. Megginson)
