A two-day immersive event built specifically for innovative companies looking to strengthen their startup engagement programs with some of the best corporates in the world.


What Will Happen

1. Learning from other companies
During this event, you will have deep-dive discussions around how companies like yours can better support startups while accomplishing your internal goals. You will hear about the challenges companies are facing, what strategies are working to push through those obstacles, and develop actionable best practices to show a return for your company. Some Partner Network companies are focused on strategic partnerships and investments while others are looking to build out their startup engagement and deal flow.

Examples of topics to be discussed include:

  • What does the ROI look like for building a startup program and what kind of results should be expected?
  • What are the best channels for sourcing high quality startups?
  • How can you win internal and executive support?
  • How are companies like yours collaborating with others to drive results?
  • What is the future of startup programs, corporate accelerators, and developer communities?

2. Meet GAN Accelerators
Our September event includes GAN Summit, our largest gathering of accelerator Managing Directors from around the world. In addition to spending time with other corporate leaders, you will spend a good amount of time getting to know GAN Accelerators in the GAN community, and finding ways to partner with them. This group is highly collaborative, and you will end the meeting by setting the direction for the future of the Partner Network so that you can continue the conversations and working together.

3. Results for Your Company
As an attendee, you will leave with new connections and actionable steps to impact your company’s startup engagement, and connections to other GAN Partners who are leading startup programs for respected organizations, as well as a playbook of best practices and next steps for you to drive better ROI and results for your company.
