Campfire with Tatjana de Kerros @Ricolab // “Beyond the hype: Most corporates aren’t ready to invest in startups”
Tatjana de Kerros talks about governance, strategic and financial requirements for successful corporate venturing, the mindset, and of course- the pitfalls (when internal corporate venturing should just be avoided- but how they can still get in on the action).
Tatjana de Kerros is Head of Corporate Venturing at Ricolab, leading venturing, startup collaboration and technology scouting for the Ricola Innovation Lab. She is on the Board of Swiss ICT Investors Club (SICTIC), and Jury Member for Bilan Top 50 Startups, Venturelab and InnoSuisse. Previously to joining Ricolab, Tatjana founded two startups, including Tagmemics, the first Arabic semantic NLP engine for financial markets- which was acquired in 2016, and her career spanned Europe and the GCC. Tatjana is particularly passionate about transformative technologies and startups that can innovate the health, wellness and financial markets in Switzerland. Her core areas of expertise are in emerging business models across SaaS, platforms, fintech, healthtech and retailtech and new collaborative models between corporates and startups. She is an active mentor, skier, hiker and proud owner of two Salukis.
