Medellín Lean Startup Night: Why Big Corporations Should Behave Like Startups

A Volunteer-Run Event
We believe changing the mindset of corporates towards a more entrepreneurial way to operate their businesses (and their innovation initiatives) in COVID and Post-COVID times is the key to survive in a daily changing world. Let’s get deep into the relevance of corporate venturing within big corporations based on the “corporate startup” concepts  and the “startup way” approach .

Come join us for an afternoon/evening of Lean Startup experiences within large corporations in Colombia, Europe and North America!

Dan Toma


I’m an innovation thought leader and the author The Corporate Startup (Vakmedien, 2017)

I come from an entrepreneurial background. I’ve been involved with technology startups across the world and is an innovation community leader in Europe.

Puzzled by the questions ‘why are innovative products mainly launched by startups?’, I focus on enterprise innovation strategy – specifically on the changes blue-chip organizations need to make to allow for new ventures to be built in a corporate setting. In this capacity I had the pleasure of working with companies like Deutsche Telekom, Bosch, Jaguar Land Rover, Bayer, John Deere or Allianz.
