Normally I’m only in contact with startups, so it’s great to speak to colleagues from other corporates on how they handle things around artificial intelligence and such. I walk away from this event today with some new collaborations in the making.

I mainly spoke to House of IT (an initiative from the City of Amsterdam) about the need for tech talent and how this is a common problem. We discussed how we can work together to tackle this.

I initiated multiple new collaborations today. Big compliments to the City of Amsterdam for doing such a good job at bringing people together.

Amsterdam is the Centre point of the European Tech and Startup Scene. With brands like KLM, Netflix and UBER, Amsterdam-based scale-ups have potentially phenomenal stepping stones to a global market.

The win for us is that we learn from the startups’ ideas and pace. Thanks StartupAmsterdam Corporate Network for connecting us all!

Corporates lack the rebelism startups and scale-ups have in abundance. By collaborating, we learn in a two-way street. That’s fantastic!
