The article discusses the experience of primary integration of innovative services (hereinafter also referred to as pilot projects, pilots) of startups in Russian big business (corporations). The low level of Russian big business digitalization compared to the European Union countries, the share decrease of innovative goods and services in the total volume of goods/services sold since 2013, as well as the increased interest of corporations in innovative solutions for 2016-2019 determine the high potential for the development of corporate innovations in Russia. As a part of the study, a systematic analysis of 32 cases of innovative IT services integration within the corporations was carried out on the basis of 20 in-depth interviews with the founders of startups and innovative companies, the scientific literature in the field of open innovations and the theory of intellectual capital was studied, reports examining the world experience in adoption innovations into the corporate structure were used. Based on the study, models for introducing innovative services in corporations were developed and classified, reflecting the flow of knowledge, changing intellectual capital, integration into the corporation’s internal IT system/software, as well as reflecting the nature of the technology being integrated. The article identified the main difficulties and risks that startups and innovative companies face when integrating their own services. The result of this study is the development of classified models for integrating external innovations into Russian corporations from various industries, which allows us to demonstrate at the project level the flows of knowledge and the change in intellectual capital of the interacting parties, as well as the difficulties that arise depending on the chosen integration method.
