Deloitte UP

Deloitte UP is the unique innovation partnership solution in Turkey, elevating the corporations by a thorough end-to-end innovation coaching program, from ideation to prototyping and delivery. As part of the program, disruptive ideas identified during creative ideation workshops based on design thinking principles are transformed into reality. Deloitte UP establishes the bridge between the corporations and the service providers, including but not limited to a wide span of technology startups, who have the required capability that fulfills the innovation needs of the Companies. Deloitte UP utilizes its well-established links with the global Deloitte network, and programs specialized in innovation partnership and startup ecosystem monitoring. This enables the corporations to utilize not only the local startup ecosystem, but also reach a worldwide portfolio of technology ventures. Corporations who participate in the Deloitte UP program will develop innovative solutions, improve their internal entrepreneurship structure and gain competitive advantage with exponential acceleration. 

Subscription to the Deloitte UP program also provides the corporations with the distinguished right of participating to the “Early Customer Demo Days”, co-operated with E-tohum, which is the pioneer accelerator and seed investor network that established the strong foundations of the startup ecosystem in Turkey. Early Customer Program brings Deloitte UP subscribers with early stage startups. On this demo day, a group of selected startups pitch to the corporations about their product or service to make them their early customers. Startups and corporations obtain the chance to meet each other all at once on the same day. On this program, corporations share their actual needs and expectations during these meetings with the startups so that they can develop better solutions to meet corporations’ needs. Companies are encouraged to attend with at least 5 people from different departments, so that each representative may catch a different aspect of the idea pitched by the startups. The most recent up-coming “Early Customer Demo Day” will be held on 23 May 2017, at the Deloitte premises in Maslak.  

Deloitte UP program consists of various service packages which provide the corporations with various levels of benefits and involvement. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss why your corporation should participate in the Deloitte UP program.
