Gorillas Can Dance: Lessons from Microsoft and Other Corporations on Partnering with Startups
Please join us on September 8, 2021, for a special webinar on Gorillas Can Dance: Lessons from Microsoft and Other Corporations on Partnering with Startups.
About the Webinar
During this webinar, CEIBS Professor of International Business and Strategy Shameen Prashantham will talk through his new book Gorillas Can Dance and his proven roadmap for large corporations collaborating with start-ups. Prof. Prashantham will also share insights from the book, including the three pillars for achieving outstanding partnership results, why differences matter and where to find your ideal partnership.
Prof. Prashantham’s research focuses on what he calls “dancing with gorillas,” – i.e., how start-ups and large multinational corporations partner with each other as a means to improve their prospects for innovation and growth. Spanning a decade-and-a-half, this book is the result of extensive fieldwork, executive trainings and talks Prof. Prashantham has conducted around the world, including in Accra, Bangalore, Beijing, Berlin, Edinburgh, Johannesburg, Lagos, London, Mexico City, Munich, Nairobi, New Delhi, Shanghai, Silicon Valley, Tel Aviv, and Zurich. His current focus is on partnerships that contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
