We help enterprises adopt a startup-first strategy
Now is the time for us
StartupBoomer mission is to be useful for startups and enterprises everywhere.
This rings true now more than ever, as we work to address the impact of COVID-19. Our unique role as a platform and services provider allows us to connect the dots, bring together an ecosystem of startup partners, and enable hundreds of enterprises of all sizes to build the digital capability required to address these challenges.
Right now, we're working with many customers on the front lines, including governments, financial and healthcare companies, manufacturers, energy & utility service providers, retailers, and other commercial customers critical to the continuity of services in every country.
We can't wait to see you back in action
We know many enterprises have been hit especially hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, very possibly including you. To support enterprises during this challenging time, we’ve waived the consultant service charges $1500 per day for all the bookings on the platform, and rallying customers to evaluate the startups they trust can solve their business problems.
Our responsibility does not end after waiving fees today or even when the pandemic is over. We consider this just a starting point. We will continue to do the right thing for you, during this crisis and beyond.
Why startup-first strategy
Almost all industries have been disrupted by startups. Nowadays it's happening to banks, car makers, logistics companies, FMCG and more. Yet many enterprises are moving slowly in engaging with startups to develop innovative solutions quickly, close to the needs of the customers and in real time. As quoted by Klaus Schwab, "In the new world, it is not the big fish which eats the small fish, it's the fast fish which eats the slow fish." Three great cases are Kodak, Blockbuster and Borders Group. All three used to dominate their respective industries but later filed for bankruptcy protection.
Startups can contribute to enterprises by offering:
- Speed of operation: Given the shorter period of time to reach break-even due to capital limitation, startups need to operate faster than large corporations to survive. Moreover, a condensed decision chain and methodologies like the lean startup approach (inspired by Toyota Lean Management) support a faster iteration. The need for speed is best summed up by a quote of Mark Parke, CEO of Nike: "One of my my fears is being this big, slow, constipated, bureaucratic company that's happy with its success". Working with startups can inspire a corporation to execute faster.
- Innovation: Startups are like a corporate R&D department outsourced. This means corporations have to keep close tabs, and zoom in on relevant innovations before competitors do. Startups innovate in different ways such as business model innovation like Airbnb and Uber which own no real estate or cars. By engaging with startups as early as possible, enterprises gains time to detect tomorrow's trends, to inoculate these innovations and practices into the DNA of company.
- Culture: "Done is better than perfect" and "Move fast and break things" are some examples of the culture at Facebook and other startups. For this reasons, many Fortune 500 enterprises are working with startups to change their internal culture which is usually risk-averse and KPI-driven.
We believe, surely not every enterprise is content to just sit on all that capital, watching the world go by? We hope that by finding and sharing the stories of world's best startups, it will make success less elusive and easier to replicate. And be a small step in getting more corporates to tap into the new global engine of innovation known as startups, in ways where everyone wins, especially enterprises themselves.
