Deloitte launches innovation tour to foster engagement between startups and corporates
All businesses – big or small – should be keenly aware by now that innovation is key to survival in this digital age.
Just as how startups are looking for ways to disrupt the market, corporations too are looking outwardly for ideas on how to address their business challenges. One such avenue is to source for ideas and solutions from the startup community that’s best known for their disruptive technology. At the same time, startups could also benefit from enterprise partners by gaining access to the required connections, resources, and capital.
Evidently, collaboration between the two could be an ingredient for success – and Deloitte, together with Tech in Asia – wants to be the catalyst.
Introducing Deloitte SPARK
This month, Deloitte Southeast Asia’s innovation arm will be launching SPARK, a three-city tour set out to ignite innovation within the region by forging meaningful partnerships between startups, corporates, and investors.
