Startups and new technologies are changing the playing field, and as a traditional company/ corporate it is often said that you are doomed if you do not join in. That's actually true. Get used to it and take advantage of it. Do something with startups if you want to win or at least do not want to lose. But do not blindly jump into the hypes.

We can help corporates and governments to make their investment decisions (time, money, resources) in innovative projects and (internal) startups more structured, rational and market-driven.

Find relevant startups

‘Death by a thousand cuts’ it's what they call it; startups that attack (or even "disrupt") corporates on a large scale. But who will really make a difference?

We help corporates to quickly get insights into relevant startups within a particular market or technology space, as a threat or opportunity.

Do you have a specific question about a particular sector or type of startup? Or are you scouting for relevant startups of technology for your problem or challenge? We can help you to find and select the right startups or technology. We can also assess startups or business cases for potential and feasibility, and explain their struggles and growth signals.

This helps you to invest time, money and resources more consciously and effectively.

Startup challenges & competitions

A startup challenge or competition can be a good way to quickly get in touch with many startups and select only the best to continue working with.

But if you want to collaborate with startups, you need to find them first. You can, of course, wait for startups to knock on your door, but you can also actively search for those startups.

We offer scouting services to help you find good, relevant startups. If desired, we can also make a substantive contribution to the qualification and selection of participants. After all, this is the core business of Golden Egg Check. This will make it much easier for your selection committees to make a sound (final) judgement.
