Business building in challenging times.

What do you need to do?

Huge challenges for new-business builders

As a new-business builder, you face an array of challenges in leading corporate innovation initiatives. Despite the statistics indicating that only 3% of corporate startups create a new business worth $50 million or more, stakeholders’ expectations remain high, adding to the pressure on your team.

In the current macroeconomic climate, the situation is even more challenging, with budgets being cut and business model incubators being decentralized. Many companies are refocusing their innovation efforts on delivering close-to-core adjacencies.

It’s clear that navigating through these troubled waters requires understanding of what your peers are doing to succeed. What strategies are they using to overcome the challenges and create new opportunities? And what steps should you be taking to ensure your team is on the path to success?
