Testimonies From Past Startups 

Kyan, Founder

We managed to meet with corporates through NEXEA which otherwise would have been tougher. Leveraging NEXEA as a trusted intermediary made the conversation easier with corporates. Through NEXEA we were able to gain access to more corporations to potentially create partnerships with. 

I would recommend the programme to any startup looking to fast track or get connected to the corporate world quicker. Reaching the right person in a corporation that can help champion a startup or help direct/introduce the startup to the right person internally will save startups valuable time, and build connections much easier for the eventual partnership collaboration pitching.
