Stibo Accelerator: How a +200 year-old company lets startups and students disrupt their business

Stibo works with students and startups to support innovation and out-of-the-box thinking in a traditional company with 1300 employees. The Stibo Accelerator program runs 12-20 radical innovation research projects each year to try to uncover how emerging trends and technologies will potentially impact the industries served by Stibo. So far 61 research projects run by 129 students and 7 startup-companies have “graduated” the Stibo Accelerator program. Kim Svendsen, Director of the Stibo Accelerator, introduces the initiative and gives practical advice for how established corporate culture can be challenged and invigorated by the unbiased creativity of students and startups.
