Drive your "Startup PoVs"

In up-to 20 weeks, corporate 'Startup PoV' programs like Rainmaking CoLab, where problem definition is a key component supported by the identification of a small number of highly aligned startups brought in for evaluation, can see organizations significantly shifting their procurement programs into overdrive.

In other words, you reap the traditional benefits of outsourcing but with the unique added benefit that comes from identifying clear evaluation criteria that are refined through repetitive collaborations with young ventures.
