Three features of ILS2023 power matching that produce highly accurate matching
Point1・Only promising startups are allowed to participate in the "Full Invitation Only" program.
The startups that can participate in the power matching are "by invitation only" and limited to startups recommended by 102 organizations, including major domestic VCs, government agencies and research institutes, and foreign organizations. Therefore, only promising startups can have business meetings. Since the recommended persons are listed on the company pages of participating startups, internal departments and executives can be involved with confidence, enabling open innovation to be promoted at a stroke.
Point 2: "Business Meeting Request" to meet with representatives of companies you have identified.
The ILS Matching website provides access to startups' products, technologies, shareholders, management information, management teams, and other non-public information, allowing users to discover potential collaborators through a variety of searches. The approval rate of business meeting requests from major companies to startups is extremely high at 941 TP3T (previous results), and since startups are required to have their representatives participate, it is almost always possible to have business meetings with representatives of the companies you have identified.
Point3・Mechanism to attract promising startups
At the last ILS, 2000 people from 400 departments of 105 major companies participated. Therefore, this is an opportunity for startups to collectively meet with key people for business meetings. In addition, the more promising a company is, the more incentive it has to participate, as popular companies had business meetings with 23 major companies in the previous edition.
