HOW IT WORKS?

01

ONBOARDING

In a 1:1 session of challenge and opportunity assessment with SOSA’ s tech analysts, we onboard the selected members of your organization. We listen thoroughly, learn your scouting criteria, and understand your specific business challenges as they relate to the program’s focus area.

02

industry roundtable

Pull up a seat at the roundtable with leaders from multinational corporations facing similar pain points. Listen to a trend spotlight research presented by the SOSA team, and partake in a working session in which we will define and refine the sub-segments and challenges the program will tackle.

03

global SCOUTING

Backed by our proprietary database, personal relationships with startups and our deep ties in the global tech ecosystem, we scout to deliver curated tech solutions from across the globe. Through our scanning, screening and validation process, we present an unbiased list with market-ready solutions that tackle the program’s focus.

04

voting

In a live session, SOSA will present the vetted and validated solutions to the program’s participants. You’ll have the opportunity to cast your vote on the startups you’d like to see in the ensuing demo event.

05

demo evnets

Prepped by the SOSA team, 10-12 finalist startups will showcase their solutions in virtual demo events. Following the pitches, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and first handedly learn from founders how their technologies can solve your most pressing challenges.

06

Pilots and partnerships

We receive your feedback on the tech companies you met, and make an action plan on how to move forward. We work together to support your partnerships, POCs, pilots, and investments.
