A program focused on providing market expansion and soft-landing for aspiring and established entrepreneurs.
BEAM14 Nov, 2016
Today, we at BEAM are incredibly excited to announce the introduction of the CrossBorder Program - A brand new initiative focused on providing market exposure, expansion, and soft-landing for aspiring & established entrepreneurs into new markets around the world.
Throughout the program, the BEAM Team will bring a small focused group of aspiring/established founders (typically teams of 2 - 3 people) to various countries around the world for a short stay (anything between 3 - 7 days) where these individuals will be exposed to the local scene. During the stay, the BEAM team will introduce these founders to various people, organisations, and places ranging from:
1) Entrepreneurs and successful startup founders
2) Investors (Angels & VCs)
3) Working spaces, incubators, office spaces
4) Locals and working professionals
5) Leaders from large corporations and governmental organisations
Flight, travel, and transportation costs throughout the entire stay are bundled into a single package, focused on affordability.
"At BEAM, our focus has always been about bridging the gap between people by fostering trust through warm connections. In the beginning, we focused a lot on connecting founders within the startup scene to form collaborations. We eventually moved on to connecting these founders with investors in their local communities, allowing them to raise capital to grow their businesses. Today, we believe that with the help of technology and affordable travel avenues, we can bridge the gap between people at a regional or even global level, at really affordable prices." - Ken Ho, CEO of BEAM.
BEAM will be rolling out it's first CrossBorder Program today (November 14th), focused on introducing Malaysian and Singaporean startups to the Japanese market (Tokyo). In time, we look forward to introducing this program to more countries around the world.
