“Don’t believe the hype”
Corporate and startup relationships are all the hype now in the tech and entrepreneurship ecosystem environment. But is it working? If so, why are we still so confused about it? Is it harder from the corporate side or startup side? Are we disrupting, or just feeding into a future of the same with corporates?
