Trusted Corporation has launched the Catalyst for Growth Program to help large multinational companies (the ‘Host” company) connect with Trusted members who are interested in investment or partnership.
The Catalyst for Growth Program is an opportunity for early to mature-stage startups to pitch their products or services to large companies. In return, the large company can invite selected startups to visit their headquarters in Japan, and/or discuss the potential for a partnership or investment opportunity.
The program allows large companies to easily find startups that match their criteria and business needs; increase their portfolio of startups; and support startups by offering partnership or investment opportunities. We also offer the large company the creative freedom to customize their application process, selection and pitch criteria, number of startups to invite to Japan, program schedule, and other prize inclusions.
We’ve designed the program to streamline the investment and partnership process, and make the decision-making process more efficient. The program will take place on the Trusted platform - a single place for startups to share their pitch video and large companies to interact with them.
Applications for the program will be open to all Trusted members and startups affiliated with our Trusted Partners. We will announce when the programs of the Host Company is officially launched, and open to receiving startup applications, so please stay tuned. If you are a startup and interested in joining the program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are on the lookout for large companies interested in becoming a host company, please contact us at email@example.com to request information on how to apply.
