#E4s - Negotiating with Corporates


by Gunasekaran Stanish (Entrepreneur and Innovation Manager at Bosch)

" It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen." – Scott Belsky


So how do we make ideas happen? As an entrepreneur bringing ideas to the market and getting those first pilot customers and collaborations are crucial. Negotiation is such an important skill that differentiates start-up success and ideas staying on the pitch deck. We will introduce you to the world of negotiations. The purpose of this workshop is to give you an overview of how effective negotiations can influence your business and the common mistakes startups often tend to make while negotiating with corporates. Let's help you get a checklist to prepare you better for corporate customers. Through this workshop, we will focus on how to create value.

This workshop is part of the mission of the EU solidarity project 'Negotiate for a Change' - to give people in our society a stronger voice and empower our young change-makers to achieve change and drive progress through effective communication.


Goals and Learnings:

• Understand what negotiation is all about.

• Value Creation versus Value Claiming

• Negotiation with corporates

• The checklist

• Practical experience with negotiations and feedback

The ideal goal is for you to feel empowered and to leave with a different perspective to approach your negotiations.
