We help banks and insurance companies go beyond the hype and get tangible results from startup collaboration. Get innovations faster, learn to work with startups and work more like startups - by working together with startups.
So far, we have done 25+ collaboration programs, tailored to our customers needs, backed up by the Nestholma Collaboration Model.
One size doesn’t fit all - we have programs for different sized and different types of needs, from couple-day seminars for executives and startup bootcamps to 3-month accelerators, all the way up to continuous startup-innovation support. Read more below or book a free consultation.
Some banks and insurance companies have difficulties finding the right startups to work with. Other organizations are real startup magnets, but only manage to do business with a few of them.
Those are all things we can help with. We know startups, we know banks and insurers. And we know how to make collaboration that leads to real results happen between the two.
On average, our customers get deals done with startups 4x-8x faster than the industry standard.
It is clear that startups and corporations are very different. But seeing it in practice still seems to surprise both the startups and the bank and insurance companies. There is a lot to learn on how to work with startups effectively. And even better: there is also a lot to learn from working with startups.
Our programs help banks & insurance companies where they need it. We can help your employees become more startup-ready, and we can help your organization become more startup-like and have more intrapreneurs inside.
Corporations need to renew themselves, and one of the best ways to do that is by working with startups. This white paper explores the benefits on branding, innovation and learning. It also reviews alternatives and best practices on collaboration.
