Large companies try to map the strengths of startups for themselves through special programs. A few months ago, mm1 presented an overview of the initiatives of the largest German stock corporations with the DAX 30 Startup and Innovation Monitor. Such an overview has now been compiled for the SMI 20 companies (Switzerland).
As every year, various innovations, trends and products were presented at the international mobile tradefair, IFA 2018, in Berlin. Next to many improvements in the fields of Smart Home, Smart TVs, mobile devices and drones, this year‘s most prominent topic were voice assistants and their integration in many kinds of third-party devices.
Nearly all companies place new business at the very top of their priority list. The international VC study by mm1 in collaboration with the WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management shows why new business is becoming increasingly more difficult, new business opportunities are systematically overestimated and what established companies need to do.
