Innovate together! – How Lantmännen collaborates with startups and entrepreneurs 

Since 2014, Lantmännen has been running the Greenhouse, an educational program for those who want support in developing an innovative business idea into a profitable business. The program is open for both intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs to participate in, and consists of a number of workshops that blends theory with practice. During our talk we will discuss among other things:

  • Setting up a platform for collaborations between a large corporation and small startups.
  • Successes and pitfalls, what we have learned so far.
  •  Examples of projects developed in the Greenhouse

Developing sustainable sourcing processes with outside in approach and agile practices

Development of Neste's Supplier Sustainability Portal, a digital platform for renewable products' feedstock suppliers, started from a global, open hackathon contest and has continued with an external partner utilizing agile practices. A wide set of learnings has been collected throughout the journey consisting of e.g. continuous stakeholder engagement, prototyping exercises and constant improvement.
