There are many great startups unable to enter new countries due to a multitude of reasons.
To proliferate into new markets requires more time, resources and capital than most viable startups possess.
Viable business models with proven technology need to overcome country-specific barriers in order to enter and grow.
By partnering with original founders, Proliferate minimizes technology risk and maximizes focus on gaining traction in the target market.
We work with local talent for their experience and insight, providing sizeable equity to local co-founders and talent in order to properly align incentives and acknowledge the pivotal role execution partners play in achieving great results.
Proliferate maintains an extensive network of investors and potential execution partners. Our equity terms are based on accepted ethical models of startup investments.
There is no geographic monopoly on innovation and ideas but we tend to favour innovative technologies that addresses unmet needs and provides tangible benefits.
We identify and partner with emerging companies where the original target market acceptance is highly visible and sustainable. The founding partners always retain control over their IP and work with us to adapt their offering for the target market.
Startups with succesful business models often struggle to expand into new markets without further equity dilution or diverting management resources away from their core market. Proliferate seeks to resolve these challenges by solving the capital, cultural, legal knowledge, and local talent restraints. We target receptive markets and jointly enter with their existing technology, adapted and modified.
We implement all the work needed with hand-picked local experts, and together implement what is needed to gain traction and continued business development. Executing best practices, we merge exceptional local entrepreneurs with strong back-end platforms.
