Techmatch

Techmatch is a B2B Outsourced Sales Team and Lead Generation company in Eastern Europe.

Techmatch was developed as a venture that clearly serves a market need in Eastern Europe. The challenge the venture is built to solve is the small to inexistent sales departments within East European tech startups. By lacking sales departments in their structure, decreases the chance for that startup to sign new clients and prove their business model.

Strategic Approach

Grai defined the vision for how the lead prospecting processes are going to operate and how Techmatch customers will be enabled by a web platform to receive RFP's and RFQ's from the generated leads.

5 Benefits of creating a corporate startup together with external entrepreneurs

Some corporations, including Google, Cisco or Axa have successfully developed their own “venture studios”, launching numerous new businesses over the course of several years. However, most of these ventures once validated are spun-out and not developed internally. Netflix spun out its “Netflix Box” division, which became Roku -- a company that now has a $4 billion-plus market cap. Fog Creek Software (now Glitch) spun out Trello and Stack Overflow. Cisco spun out -- and subsequently acquired -- three different startups from the same group of founders. However many more had tried but failed to deliver the expected results and had their units closed.
