Entrepreneurs have a lot of choice when it comes to getting off the ground: from bootstrap, to angels and traditional VC, and that scary new kid on the block: corporate. Samsung, GE, Google, Intel. The biggest names in technology have made the move into corporate investment. Why…and what’s it mean for you?
These brands recognize that true innovation for the long haul comes from collaboration. It’s not just about acquisitions and competition.
