WHY PARTNER WITH STARTUPS AND SCALE-UPS?

When you pair the domain expertise, networks, distribution channels, customers and resources of a large organisation with the speed, talent and emerging technology of startups, you deliver winning outcomes, fast.

VALUE

Avoid analysis paralysis and the massive cost of jumping to conclusions. Solve real problems with real solutions this year.

CULTURE

In today's fast-moving business landscape, embedding startup DNA into your organization is key to long-term survival.

BRAND

Generate press, paint your brand in a progressive light, and attract top talent who want to work for firms that are serious about innovation.

OUR APPROACH

A typical VC firm tracks thousands of startups a year, and only invests in 20.
You need to cast an equally wide net when it comes to your own startup programs in order to tap into the best talent.
But don't worry, we do it all for you.

1 - BUSINESS MODEL

In order to best work with you, we gain an understanding of your business model.

2 - CHALLENGE

We work with you to identify strategic problem or opportunity areas and define your challenge statement(s).

3 - SEARCH

We use a proprietary machine learning tool we've developed, our networks and scouts to perform a comprehensive local and global search for challenge aligned startups and scale-ups and invite them to respond to the challenge statement(s).
Depending on the challenge statement, expect us to target between 500 and 1,000 aligned companies.

4 - EVALUATE

We leverage analytics to assess challenge applicants across more than 30 factors and develop an initial shortlist.

5 - INTERVIEW

We roll up our sleeves and interview all of the shortlisted applicants, so you don't have to, in order to find out what the data doesn't tell us and determine fit for purpose, further optimizing the shortlist.

6 - FINAL SHORTLIST

We present you with the shortlist for review and feedback, and provide you with evaluation guidance.
Depending on the challenge statement, expect between 20 and 50 companies in the final shortlist.

7 - SELECT

We help you select which companies to work with. This could also take the form of a pitch event at your company HQ.
Organizations we work with typically select 1 to 3 companies to work with - needle, meet haystack.

8 - GET STUFF DONE

We help you determine the best engagement method and how best to work with startups, so that you get the most out of the engagement.

Aidan Coleman
CTO at Charter Hall

"We’re delighted to have partnered with Collective Campus to create Australia’s first accelerator program for property technology start-ups. They brought together the right network, focus, energy, structure and support mechanisms to make this program a remarkable success not only for Charter Hall but importantly for the participating start-ups."

KARNA LUKE
General Manager SME, Bank of New Zealand

"The Go SME Grow programme was Bank of New Zealand’s intent to drive into startup matching and we’re certainly pleased with our decision to deliver it with Collective Campus. Throughout the process, Steve and his team provided a fantastic mix of corporate awareness and a keen knowledge of the international startup, scaleup and business model innovator community. This experience with Collective Campus’ flexibility, undoubtedly helped make Go SME Grow the success we intended."

MAX TIONG
Head of Transformation, NTUC Income

"Summary of the engagement with us would be rewarding. Our COO was of praise regarding the way the team has operated in the view to always give us the value that makes sense to the organization and not have the corporates constantly “accommodate” to the startup way. It was a good marriage of how corporates and startups can work closely together. Our engagement focused really around the team helping us interact, identify and integrate startups and their POCs into Income."
