Presented by ASAP-Silicon Valley and Harvard Business School Association of Northern California - Strategy & Growth Roundtable

Featured speaker: Steve Steinhilber, VP Strategic Alliances, Cisco

Businesses are under more pressure than ever to rapidly produce new sources of innovation and revenue growth. Often new innovation is stymied by internal inertia, politics, inward focus and lack of resources. Learn how networking giant Cisco is leveraging its ecosystem of alliance partners, acquisitions and other sources to augment its internal development to fuel the company's growth.

Steve Steinhilber, Vice President of Strategic Alliances at Cisco, will share how partnering is an increasingly critical tool in addition to mergers and acquisition to increase innovation and growth.

At this presentation, you'll learn:
* How partnering supports the mergers and acquisition process
* How partnering for innovation differs from go-to-market partnering
* What processes large companies use to manage alliance relationships
* How smaller companies enter the pipeline and get noticed
