In a highly competitive world, corporates have to stay relevant to their market. But with rigid internal structures that leave little room for creativity or risk-taking, corporates are often left behind when it comes to innovation, which, in the long term, can harm their business.

So, what can they do to innovate?

In this episode, Diana Joseph, Founder and CEO of Corporate Accelerator Forum, discusses how partnering with startups can help corporates access more creative freedom and flexibility, and how startups and corporates can work together to reach collective innovation goals.

She also touches on the dynamics of corporate-startup relationships, and how it differs from the Y Combinator Model.
