Check out the replay of the webinar “Ecosystems thrive by deals and perish by theatre” moderated by a representative of Thinkers 50. We at 42C strongly believe in the message of fostering deals out of innovation ecosystems as we see these as the solution for the mega challenges we have at hand. Think climate change, equality improvement, waste minimalization. In this webinar we explain our concern that the level of innovation theatre currently displayed might undermine the potential of innovation ecosystems. Hence our catchy webinar title.
The founding belief of the Business Ecosystem Alliance [BEA] is that ecosystems are important and a growing phenomenon in the life of organizations of all types, in all locations, and all sectors of activity. Ecosystems represent potentially the best organizational model for the future of organizations.
The Business Ecosystem Alliance aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, and others who are interested in better understanding how ecosystems work and how they can have a positive impact on organizations, society, and the world. In doing so, the Business Ecosystem Alliance aims to create a mutually supporting ecosystem of knowledge, research, and best practice.
For the monthly webinar, Stuart Crainer of Business ecosystem Alliance, in association with Thinkers 50, is joined by Ank van Wylick, Camal Handor, and Steffie Op de Laak, the founders of 42Collective, a cooperative which aims to create breakthroughs by building innovative collaborative ecosystems which corporates and solution-providers can both benefit from. Our collective experience spans more than 75 years, working as partners, strategists, innovators, and founders at companies like KPMG, ING, Rabobank, StartupBootcamp and PA Consulting and helping companies in sectors like financial services, life sciences, chemicals, natural resources, agriculture, and retail.
