Building a Bridge,
between Corporates and Startups

Corporates are facing new Challenges

Many firms have to adjust their existing business models to absorb potential turnover losses. Processes have to be digitalized to be more efficient and new trends have to be adapted to keep the customers satisfied.

Startup Scouting Structure

Why do Corporates need
Startup Scouting

There are already a lot of startups out there and every day new ones are founded hence resulting in a complete overload. Most of the startups also know very well how to present themself and often "fake it before they make it".

How can corporates identify relevant startups in this sea of newly founded companies?
Once relevant startups are detected how do you filter between those who fake it and those who are corporate ready?

Many corporates are not able to do a tech or commercial due diligence inhouse and therefore are dependent on external help.
This is where TechBridge comes into play. We help you to identify and evaluate the right startups to set up successful partnerships and/or investments.
