Tecnoturbines participates in a round table for BeBusiness Sant Cugat

Tecnoturbines participated in the round table «How to start-ups and corporate businesses can work together to increase sales», which took place on 27 October in the ESADECREAPOLIS Auditorium, as part of the eighth day of the BeBusiness Sant Cugat event.

The session focused on the key aspects and collaboration models that can exist between start-ups and corporate businesses to increase sales. Among the invited speakers were Jaime Lledó, CEO of Tecnoturbines, and Carlos Solana, CEO of Fashiop, who spoke about their experiences as founders of successful start-ups and what led them to become entrepreneurs. Next, Jesús Murillo, Corporate Venturing Manager at Acció (the business competition agency at the Generalitat de Catalunya) explained the support programmes that make corporate & start-up collaborations possible. Xavier Servat, Director of Fluidra Accelera and Roberto Martin, Head of IT Innovation at Bayer, presented their respective programmes for collaboration with start-ups, as well as the reasons that led them to direct resources towards emerging businesses.

The conference continued with a debate in which attendees were able to find out more about the corporate entrepreneurship sector from different points of view. The speakers also shared the companies’ criteria when choosing start-ups, and the expectations and reasons that lead start-ups to collaborate with corporate businesses, among other issues of interest.  Finally, and as is to be expected for such an event, there was a time for networking, in which knowledge and experiences were exchanged in a more relaxed environment.

Corporate Entrepreneurship

Corporate entrepreneurship is something we hear about ever more frequently, but what is it exactly? In fact, it is a win-win situation, in which companies invest in start-ups to encourage innovation and improve competitiveness, while small businesses with a large potential for growth (commonly known as start-ups) can improve their position on the market through the support of corporations and institutions that are better consolidated. Therefore, it means creating collaborative relationships and encouraging partnerships to develop innovative projects that contribute towards economic growth.
