Global Partner Program
TEP aims to build a platform for technology based startups that are expanding their business on the global stage. Working in partnership with a startup community of each country enables us to support worldwide startups both domestically and internationally.
Beginning with the targeting market, it is crucial for startups to seek their business partners and employees in optimal, overseas locations by going beyond the domestic boarders. In particular, most issues to be solved by technology based startups, TEP’s focus, are globally common issues. Therefore, they must always have the global mindset.
Today, we have designated 29key persons(as of March, 2017) from 19 cities in our startup communities as “global partners”, making it possible to access these commnunities around the world.
