 accelerating evolution

We are a nonprofit program created by former startup founders that understand the importance of relationships in the growth trajectory of a business.

Corporations work with us to find partnership and strategic investment opportunities to expand their horizons. We navigate the global startup ecosystem to vet potential partners and make connections. You might call us Business Development Angels.

Our motivation is simple:
build win-win relationships to accelerate evolution.

startup program

 

Corporate innovation programs are intense sprints.
We clear away obstacles so startups can focus on what they do best.

 
 
 

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

We connect startups with our large corporate partners for collaboration opportunities. We bridge the cultural divide and help startups navigate the sales process.

 

CORPORATE ACCELERATORS

We design and manage corporate innovation and accelerator programs and actively scout for startups best suited to each.

 

COACHING

We work closely with startups to help them succeed in a program, and guide them on how to leverage the experience for continued growth.

 
 

STRATEGIC INVESTORS

We match startups with corporate partners that may be a better fit than VCs.

 

NETWORKING & MENTORSHIP

We offer access to a global network of peers, mentors, funding sources and potential customers to accelerate growth.

 

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

We support startups in our network with a range of professional services, including legal, marketing, insurance, banking, recruitment, accounting, and financial.
