We make it easier to know what’s out there, spot emerging threats and identify candidates for partnerships, strategic investments and acquisitions.
Executives overwhelmed by a high volume of inbound sales and partnership inquiries equally struggle to efficiently identify the best opportunities to drive innovation in their business.

We help our clients go further than just knowing what’s out there. Our team stays involved by managing your newly uncovered disruptive ecosystem, whether that is further advising on a specific match, developing corporate innovation programs, or facilitating startup pitch days and hackathons at some of the world’s leading accelerators. SoftMatch continues to cultivate your ongoing process of innovation and turns big ideas into big actions.
