What is MarketLink?
MarketLink connects tech industry giants with emerging technology companies across the globe. Selected companies will meet with top executives in an hour-long, 1 on 1 setting to discuss potential partnership opportunities. This comes at NO COST to the applicant. MarketLink is a program offered through EvoNexus.
What is EvoNexus?
EvoNexus is the high tech organization under which MarketLink operates. In addition to MarketLink, EvoNexus has a technology incubator with three locations covering Southern California’s startup and entrepreneurial community, from downtown San Diego to Irvine. The EvoNexus incubator empowers motivated entrepreneurs to turn their transformative ideas into fundable, commercially viable companies, and leverages community resources to provide what entrepreneurs need to be successful, without requiring them to surrender equity.
How MarketLink Works:
- EvoNexus brings multinational corporations to San Diego (6 times per year) that are looking to engage with emerging technology companies.
- The multinational corporation outlines areas of technology in which they are looking for engagement.
- The emerging companies/startups that meet these guidelines can apply online through the EvoNexus website.
- The MarketLink Program Manager finds high quality startups from not only within the EvoNexus incubator but from all over the nation and internationally to come meet with the multinational corporation.
- The executives from the multinational corporation are responsible for reviewing the applications and picking the companies they would like to meet with.
- The emerging companies/startups will attend an exclusive reception event to mingle with top level executives from the multinational corporation.
- The emerging companies/startups will receive a 55 minute face-to-face meeting to present their technology and discuss potential areas of engagement with the attending executives.
Things to Consider:
- Even if the application seems simple, please take your time, as this will be the material reviewed by the executives to determine their interest in meeting with you.
- We receive between 50 to over 100 applications, which makes MarketLink a very competitive opportunity.
