In this month's edition of The Neue Industry, JOIN Capital's newsletter, Aquaa Partners was delighted to have been featured as the transformative power of techquisition continues to be recognised and shared.
Paul Cuatrecasas, Founder and CEO of Aquaa Partners, used the term “techquisition” in his keynote, but it quickly became an important theme throughout the day.

Decision makers within today’s global giants are concerned more about the next quarter, and not the future of innovation. We can’t blame them — it’s simply the reality. However, that’s where startups come in: they are able to show larger companies that today’s times are not just business as usual, but rather “business as exponential”.
