Initial assessment

Every MATCH starts somewhere.

We bring short-term joint impact to corporations and scaleups. To do so, we look for game-changing scaleups with confirmed market traction and that are ready to collaborate. Scaleups are assessed for the following criteria, as well as being assessed for relevance by our network of senior telecom industry experts.

Product fit: Do you have scalable & innovative solution with telco use cases?

Traction: Do you have a validated business case and recurring business with at least 1 paying corporate customer in telecom?

Readiness: Are you in a Seed+ funding stage and striving to scale your business operations in Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America?

Financials: Do you have an Annual Recurring Contract Value of €150+ and an Annual Recurring Revenue of €1Mio+?

Then you found your MATCH. Apply today, and if you are selected, you can quickly enter into our mutual validation phase – where we have made it easier than ever to see rapid business impact for your scaleup while we continue to assess your fit for the portfolio.

Apply to start the validation phase!

Mutual validation phase

We deliver quick impact and ensure the right mutual fit.

We have streamlined our onboarding process to create business impact for scaleups quickly.

After an initial thorough assessment, qualified scaleups can enter into our 3-month mutual validation phase. In this phase, we demonstrate our impact for your scaleup while also continuing to validate your fit in our portfolio. There is no long-term commitment during this validation phase – making it easier than ever to get started scaling your business!

In the validation phase, you can expect warm introductory discussions with relevant telecom customers, market feedback from concrete joint sales opportunities, and continuous sales support from our industry experts. At the end of the 3-month phase, we jointly review the collaboration rationale and decide whether to continue into full collaboration.

Apply to be considered for our validation phase – spots are limited, so apply today!

Full collaboration

We support your sales end-to-end with unmatched telco access and proven collaboration expertise

For scaleups who advance past the validation phase, we offer full collaboration: hands-on support from our whole network of telecom industry experts to deliver more, faster, and larger deals.

In this more extensive market engagement, we leverage our whole global network of Match-Makers – former CXOs in the telecom industry – to provide warm access to the decision-makers of leading telecommunications players. And we are much more than a door opener – from first pitches and opportunity development to winning the account and scaling the joint activities, we are in this together end-to-end.

You reach new customers through our global access to telco CXOs, accelerate your deals through our proven Corp-Up expertise, and scale effectively within each account through our continued support and deep account knowledge.
