We're an extension of your innovation team.
Our analysts and experts do a deep dive with your team to understand your company's current technology roadmap, needs, and opportunities.
We then organize these challenges into a series of Projects on the Traction platform.
Once we identify the requirements for each Project, our researchers find and vet startup candidates, typically with the goal to enter into a pilot or proof-of-concept (POC).
Traction reduces the friction of the sourcing process, and the time it takes to get to a viable pilot by leveraging the network that we've spent the last 30 years building.
Each Project is set up in stages with a unique set of tasks and hurdles that each startup must pass to get to the next evaluation stage.
Traction delivers 3-4 enterprise-ready startups in each Project — all prospects are financially stable, have worked with other relevant enterprise customers, and can scale to your organization.
Our services are delivered through the Traction platform — Research customers get full access to the platform's project management and discovery tools.
Startup finalists present to your team via live video conference addressing your specific Project goals.
Request extra research on any startup in the Traction. Our analysts will create enhanced profiles for each startup, with custom data and questions answered.
