Services → Startup Engagement
"We have learned what it takes to build and connect with Japanese corporations. We have experience navigating collaboration between startups and Japanese organisations, assisting both sides to gain greater value faster and find success through their projects."
Collaborate to Innovate
We have facilitated hundreds of startup-corporate engagements by matching the pain points and technology preferences of our partners to specific startups to design, prototype, and execute new solutions together.

Results you can measure
We work together with our partners to scale new solutions that will demonstrate clear ROI within the organisation.
A culture of innovation
We help our partners approach innovation from “the-outside-in” which gives access to vital insights for the commercialising of new technologies.
A competitive edge
We leverage our startup expertise and global ecosystem to help our partners drive the creation of new product lines, cost savings and additional revenue streams.
How we work with you
We provide different structures and durations to match the needs of our clients – from designing and running a Starutpbootcamp program with other market participants and solving top industry challenges, to launching a bespoke pilot program catered to your specific interest areas.
We identify potential pilot focus areas based on external analysis, plotting the impact of industry forces, startups and technology trends.
Our analysts source top startups in each pilot focus area and assess them for strategic fit, shortlisting the most viable startups for final selection.
We facilitate the collaborative design of the pilot between the selected startup and business unit and keep track of the pilot’s progress and outcomes.
A detailed case study is written upon the pilot’s conclusion with recommendations on how to move forward.
Startupbootcamp, one of the world’s most active global investors and accelerators is part of Rainmaking.
For over a decade we have successfully delivered over 100 innovation programs in partnership with 200+ corporations and government officials.
From industry-specific accelerators to bespoke innovation programs tailored to the needs of a single corporation, we help our partners clearly define business challenges and build a pipeline of external capabilities together with startups.
