News

June 05, 2018

Program will facilitate collaborations between global corporations looking for solutions to real problems, and startups with cutting-edge technologies and capabilities

Today, Highline BETA announced Fast Track, a new program to close the gap between startups and enterprise by bringing together corporate executives and the top startups who are shaping the future of the technology industry.

Fast Track allows both startups and corporations to save time by exploring pre-qualified opportunities for collaboration. By facilitating targeted connections between corporate leaders looking for solutions to real problems and startups with cutting-edge technologies and capabilities, Fast Track will improve the speed, quality, and focus of corporate-startup partnerships.

How it Works:

  1. Sourcing and Selection of Startups
    We work closely with key executives to identify key challenges and potential opportunities within your enterprise
  2. Matching and Prep
    Working with key executives to pre-qualify short listed startups, we connect with startups to ensure fit, and identify any potential barriers to participation or potential progress.
  3. Fast Track Program
    Startups and key executives participate in bespoke programming which enables discovery and detailed discussions on potential partnerships.
    Startups are provided with insight into the enterprise, including access to key decision makers
    A win-win outcome means that both sides reduce the partnership process from months to hours
  4. Post Event
    Both corporate and startup teams receive actionable feedback to help drive further outcomes

“Done right, startup-corporate collaborations can drive outcomes for both the startup and the enterprise,” said Marcus Daniels, Founding Partner and CEO of Highline BETA. “Our Fast Track sessions bring together the right people, at the right time, to create accelerated paths to strategic collaborations, partnerships, investments and co-creations.”
