Bridge between game-changing innovators & global investors

“ We increasingly find a big disconnect between the disruptive innovators and investors in cross-border markets.”

 

PROBLEMS IN THE CURRENT MARKET

Disconnect between investors and startups in x-border

Investors say

“……It is hard to find quality information on innovative start-ups and private companies before they go public or become too expensive…”

“…..want to explore cross-border opportunities…. World is converging. We can’t just stay in the domestic market.”

 

“….We are seeking inorganic growth and need to find the next growth model to win in this fast growing market…”

Startups say

“…We do not have the resources for in-depth market and industry research, nor the financial expertise….”

…..”how do we tap into the pool of overseas investors and attract them?….how can we learn to talk in the investor language?.. ”

“….language barrier often makes me hesitant to seek global investors….”
