Playing in the sandbox - Can co-creation, between startups and incumbents, be the key to building successful products?

This year the Financial Conduct Authority launched the Regulatory Sandbox, which is meant to be a ‘safe space’ where businesses can test innovative products, services, business models and delivery mechanisms. This is a progressive step for startups in regulated industries, like financial services. However, many young companies still need active partnerships with established banks, firms and other corporates in order to test developing products with live data, enterprise architecture and an active customer base.Sandboxes, like the one set up by the FCA in the UK, are a step in the right direction for regulated industries. But they struggle to be useful if certain startups aren’t given the resources to test their products, properly. 

What incentives can you give traditional firms to invite them into the sandbox to support startups to co-create industry-changing products? What procedures can you put in place to make sure co-creation is not only beneficial to startups, incumbents firms but to the regulatory process itself?

Playing in the sandbox, will be an interactive, think tank style roundtable where you can hear from industry experts to debate and discuss the current state of the industry as well as future trends with your peers.
