What are the key programmes offered by the Europe's Corporate Startup Stars?
The corporates were evaluated by a panel of high-profile judges based on the processes, goals and priorities adopted to procure, partner, acquire, invest, accelerate and mentor startups or scale-ups.
The list of selected organisations were published on Startups.co.uk and the corporates were celebrated at Startup Europe Summit in Berlin.
The rationale behind the initiative was to promote role models and good practice among large firms, as well as helping startups and scale-ups to identify the best corporate partners and learn more about their programmes.
For this reason, as part of the project, we produced a profile of each of the corporates listed in the ranking. In it, we highlighted the corporates' main features such as: where the organisation is located, the sectors of interest and programmes offered to startups, their way of working with small businesses, success stories, learnings and contact points.
Here are the profiles of the top 25 startup-friendly corporates:
7. Telecom Italia
20. SAP SE
We aim to to update this resource for both corporates and startups in 2017, so stay tuned.
