Global Partner Program

Global Partner Program

TEP aims to build a platform for technology startups that are active on a global level. Working in partnership with startup communities from around the world enables us to mutually support startups worldwide.

It is crucial for startups to go beyond the domestic boarders and search overseas when it comes to seeking their personnel, from business partners to employees, not to mention the targeting market as well. In particular , the issues most often noted among the technology startups ( TEP’s focus) are the same as those seen worldwide, and thus it is imperative that startups always try to maintain a global mindset.

At present, TEP has welcomed 26 key persons from startup communities in 17 cities overseas as “ global partners” (as of June, 2021), making it possible to access these communities worldwide.
