Form the right connections and partnerships opportunities. From industry events, startup pitches, networking and more, we help you find the right connections.
It’s difficult to understand what is happening in the Bay Area and articulate opportunity from fiction. We’re your trusted ecosystem guide helping you pay attention to what masters the most for your growth.
At Runway we create and leverage the symbiotic corporate-startup relationships to drive business value and deliver results.
Currently, the innovation services landscape is extremely fragmented, as we’re sure you’ve seen when considering an external innovation partner. There are many companies offering one-off services (accelerators, workshops, CVC) that may seem like your “silver bullet”. Rather, each service is simply one piece of a much larger puzzle. This results in innovation professionals like yourself puzzle-piecing together a solution from several providers – drawing on your limited time, capital, and resources.
Runway links the key innovation pieces together to create a full-stack, end-to-end solution customized to your specific needs. Our approach combines corporate innovation strategy, startup engagement activities, and ecosystem development puzzle pieces together to create the right program for your team. Ultimately, we help you effectively develop, execute, and grow value-generating innovation capabilities within your organization far beyond the marketing fluff.
Together, we build the right innovation program custom to your specific needs rather than a one-off project. Our services scale with your organization as your enterprise’s innovation activities mature.
