How it works
Most startups that go through our program are nominated by one of our referral partners, but we are always interested in meeting innovative young companies that may be a good fit for our current corporate partners. See how the process works below:
Tell us about yourself
Our process begins with a startup intake survey. This process takes about 15 minutes and serves to collect general information on your product/service, financial traction to date, company growth, and partnership interests. The information you share is stored securely and completely confidential; it will never be shared publicly or with third parties. It will only be reviewed by the innovation teams at participating corporations to decide whether you will receive an invitation to pitch at demo day.
Discuss the match
Business, not charity
The Corporate-Startup Challenge created an opportunity for my company to secure a Fortune 50 client. Through this process, we were able to navigate toward a meaningful relationship with ADM centered around an exciting cybersecurity project that was a great match for our technology.
