Watch the latest in the Catalyst Seminar Series: Innovating in NH - Innovative Partnerships
Overview: Companies often need to innovate in order to expand and grow, but finding the resources to innovate can be a challenge. Hiring additional personnel, outsourcing, or using work-for-hire services may allow the company to retain significant ownership over intellectual property, but the cost of these avenues can be prohibitive. Pursuing an innovative partnership, whether with another industrial partner or with an entity such as a university, could be a good alternative. Chris Dundorf, Founder and President of 2KR Systems shares his experiences with starting a company in New Hampshire and the benefits and tradeoffs of using strategic partnerships to fund and advance innovations in 2KR's product offerings.
