What is startup scouting?

Startup scouting is part of the corporate venture engagement. More specifically, it is the process of identifying, evaluating, and selecting the best startups to work with. The purpose is to ensure that the right startups will enter your radar in due time.

What you'll get

1. A Tailor-made Campaign

What is a Campaign? A Campaign is not just a simple search. A Campaign, specifically defined by your needs, is an iterative process of finding the best startups.

2. Novable Agent Support

Who are the Agents? Although AI technologies have come a long way, they’re only the first part of the process. That’s where our scouting experts come into play, guaranteeing the quality of the AI’s results by providing their insights.

3. Fast Delivery

Why pick Novable over a specialised scouting team? Novable has an edge over traditional scouting teams. Instead of a normal 4-8 week scouting period, Novable delivers the first full batch of results in 2 days.
