The Roundtable.

A (free) meeting of minds with peer practitioners and experts.
We discuss one particular business building topic at a time.

What you get: Fresh perspectives, inspiration, confirmation of your plans.

Who Will You Meet At The Roundtable?

Business building is a rather new discipline. There is not a textbook solution for success.

Leading companies progress by discussing case studies and the critical issues. They make more and better distinctions about what works and what doesn’t.

The Lean Scaleup roundtables provide a space for these discussions.

C-level and Senior Management

“We are not getting a good return from off-Core innovation activities. Transformation success is at risk.

I want to pinpoint where we struggle and learn how we could improve.”

Innovation Center/Corporate Innovation

“Innovations don’t scale because the Core’s processes aren’t built for supporting out-of-the box concepts.

I need to nudge the Core to be more supportive.”

Corporate Venture and Corporate Venture Capital

“We have many promising options, but we need to double-down on a few.

I want to stress-test our venture-building and identify high-impact improvements.”
