Part one of a two-part interview with Daniele Dondi, the co-founder of the ING Innovation Studio. Daniele wrote an article titled, "Four Controversial Learnings After Setting Up a Corporate Accelerator." He discussed some of the less-talked about issues that arise in corporate innovation, many of which are absolutely vital to address for the accelerator to be successful. Today, Brian and Josh sat down with Daniele to talk about the specific "controversial learnings" regarding the dynamics of external and internal teams and the environment and timing necessary for the teams to succeed. Check back next week (or subscribe!) to listen to part two of this interview which will focus on crucial, but usually ignored, realizations about validation and sponsors in corporate innovation.
