The Challenge Festival kicks off tomorrow evening with an opening party at 1776, followed by a week of startup competition and conferences that will get your innovative juices flowing.

One such conference is The Corporate Revolution, a lunchtime event that will be held on Tuesday, May 13 at Ideaspace. This conference will focus on how startup innovation is becoming a critical component of leading corporations’ competitive strategies. It’s the perfect opportunity to see how “thinking like a startup” is affecting even the biggest, most established companies. How might this trend apply to your company? Better yet, what does it mean for you, as an entrepreneur?

A panel of innovation executives from major corporations will discuss their strategy of partnering with or acquiring startups to keep their companies growing and innovating over time. It’s a case of the big guys learning from the little guys, and this strategy speaks to the growing role startups and their founders are playing in the larger business world.

Here’s a peek at the panelists who will be speaking next Tuesday:

  • Evan Burfield, Cofounder at 1776
  • Diana Stepner, VP of Innovation Partnerships and Developer Relations at Pearson
  • Karen Dahut, Executive Vice President, Booz Allen Hamilton
  • Mark Smith, MD, Director, MedStar Institute for Innovation
  • Brian Lukoff, Program Director, Learning Catalytics at Pearson
  • Donna Harris, Cofounder at 1776
