Start Alliance: Enter new markets more easily!

What is the Start Alliance?

Today's startups are thinking global from the very start. That is why Start Alliance facilitates quickly and cheaply testing out new markets in North America, Europe or Asia to effectively evaluate new opportunities.

Are you a startup based in our partner cities? If so, this program could be for you. The Start Alliance is an exchange program created for those who are beyond the idea/prototype stage and have successfully launched in their domestic market. Start Alliance is designed to help startups who are interested in:

  • Expanding into new markets
  • Looking for international cooperation partners 
  • Seeking to raise capital internationally 
  • Recruiting international teams
