Alibaba Cloud is thrilled to announce the launch of the Alibaba Cloud Startup Catalyst Program. In partnership with KrASIA, this program aims to connect and empower startups to catalyze global growth and innovation.
The Alibaba Cloud Startup Catalyst Program offers a range of benefits to startups, including cloud credit support of up to USD 120,000, access to the three-month Alibaba Cloud Global Technology Services support package for the price of one month, and a one-year Alibaba Cloud Academy membership—Alibaba Cloud’s online learning and accreditation platform. This comprehensive package aims to equip startups with the tools they need to succeed in today’s competitive business landscape.
With a tiered support system, the program ensures that startups receive support progressively as they grow. In addition to the program’s core benefits, startups can unlock additional opportunities to further their growth and build visibility.
Startups enrolled in the program will have the chance to get featured on the Alibaba Cloud marketplace, gaining exposure to a vast network of potential customers and partners. This increased visibility can also significantly boost brand recognition and drive business growth.
Furthermore, the program offers exclusive invitations to regional events, providing startups with valuable networking opportunities and access to industry experts. These events serve as platforms for startups to showcase their innovations, exchange ideas, and forge strategic partnerships.
Co-marketing opportunities represent another valuable aspect of the program. Startups can collaborate with Alibaba Cloud on joint marketing initiatives, leveraging the company’s extensive reach and resources to amplify their brand messaging and expand their customer base.
As part of the program, Alibaba Cloud will also organize market immersion trips, enabling startups to explore new markets and gain firsthand insights into local business landscapes. These trips will provide startups with invaluable exposure to international markets, fostering cross-border collaborations and opening doors to new opportunities.
As the official program partner, KrASIA will collaborate with Alibaba Cloud to identify and support the next generation of leading technology startups in Southeast Asia’s emerging markets. KrASIA will leverage the deep expertise and resources of its broader entity, 36Kr Global, to connect Alibaba Cloud with the region’s key innovation ecosystems and the startups operating within them.
