However, acquiring another business or partnering up is a serious commitment - integration can be a challenge, payback time frames can be long and success is far from guaranteed. What is the recipe for success and what role do VC funds, incubators and innovation consultants play in this ecosystem? Panelists Harry Keen (CEO and Co-founder, Hazy), Stacey Seltzer (Partner, Prehype), Itxaso del Palacio (Investor), Matthew Price (Customer Connect Program Leader EMEA, Oracle) and Anela Musat (Partner, CMS London) share their experience.
