Our six-step process sets TechEmerge apart from other accelerator programs, diving deep to pinpoint the needs of emerging markets and leveraging our industry expertise and extensive partner network.

1 - ASSESS

We identify challenges and gaps in emerging markets, talking in person with local organizations to ensure we understand which technologies could best meet their needs.

2- SOURCE

We launch an open call for innovators worldwide with locally relevant solutions to apply to join the program.

3 - SELECT

With the support of a network of expert advisors, we select high-performing innovators with proven technologies that can meet the needs of participating local organizations.

4 - MATCH

Through a carefully curated process, we arrange events and meetings for the shortlisted innovators to meet local organizations, demo their products, and discuss the potential to pilot projects together. 

5 - PILOT

With our support, selected innovators and participating organizations partner to test technologies in a local setting.

6- COMMERCIALIZE

If the pilot is successful, the local organization and innovator may decide to enter into a commercial contract.
