Innovation could take years,
if not decades to reach you
Today...
And innovation is brought to you
nearly instantly, from anywhere!
Here are just a few..
Build
Measure

FASTER
A (tech) startup's best friends
Everyone is a founder, life learner
This means innovation will happen...
Over $600Bn/yr spent in R&D
Globally by Corporations but...
Product release cycle shortened
from years to hours
Lean, Validated Learning
Startups innovate faster, cheaper, more often
Their valuation quickly sky rocket once they start scaling
It's well known that 90% of (large) M&A deals fail... to deliver expected results
But smaller companies are easier to plug-in, integrate and shape
Build ecosystems
Partner often, quickly
Fail small, fail fast
Acqu(h)ire leaders, visionaries, teams, insights
Stay connected to startups
Self cannibalization is the new norm
Discover relevant startups before it’s too late
Company is too expensive

Somebody else bought them

Company disrupt your market
Reward risk taking
Try something new
Can't beat them, buy them..soon

Easy to invest..
Hard to get returns!

IPOs are in the Intensive Care Units
M&A (aka Cash) is King
Who is Buying?
M&A as a Tool for Innovation
Still historic Low Interest Rate

Needs internal or external investments w/ high ROI

Pressure by shareholders to return capital (dividends)
Why Cash on the Balance sheet is a Problem?
Interesting Fact about M&A
Why Silicon Valley leads the way?
It's about the people, the network

Know who you buy, price less a concern

Cumulative experience, critical mass

Willingness to acquire innovation
