We are thrilled to announce a strategic partnership between START Venture and BlackStorm Consulting. Both parties are dedicated to supporting the growth of startups in the ecosystem, and this partnership will allow us to expand our reach and support even more companies in their journey.
Together, START Venture and BlackStorm Consulting will offer a comprehensive range of services and benefits to help Mongolian startups and scale-ups scale in the Southeast Asian market (SEA). Whether it’s introducing companies to new opportunities, providing access to funding, facilitating strategic planning, or offering speaking and networking opportunities, this partnership will bring together the best of both organisations to support the growth and success of Mongolian startups, technology companies, and scale-ups.
Mongolia is home to a rich culture and heritage that sets it apart from other countries in the region. This cultural heritage provides Mongolian startups with a unique competitive advantage and can be leveraged to differentiate themselves in the Southeast Asian market. For example, Mongolian startups may be able to incorporate traditional elements of their culture into their products, services, or branding in order to stand out from their competitors and appeal to consumers in the SEA market.
With the right support and resources, Mongolian startups have the potential to grow into successful and innovative businesses that drive economic growth in the SEA market. This not only benefits the companies themselves, but it also helps to promote economic development in Mongolia and strengthens its presence in the SEA marketplace.
“We believe that this partnership between START Venture and BlackStorm Consulting will open new doors and bring untold benefits to the Mongolian startup community. By combining START Venture’s expertise in community-building and its strong ties to the Mongolian startup ecosystem with BlackStorm Consulting’s experience in corporate strategy and market entry in SEA, we expect to see greater opportunities and growth for all involved. We are confident that this partnership will have a positive impact on the Mongolian startups’ community, and we are eagerly anticipating the exciting results that will come from this collaboration,” shared Zolboo Bayarsaikhan, CEO of START Venture.
The SEA market presents a wealth of opportunities for Mongolian startups looking to scale and reach new markets. BlackStorm Consulting is well-positioned to help Mongolian startups through our consultations and structuring services, we can help them to understand the key factors they need to consider in order to succeed in the SEA market. This includes guiding market research, target market analysis, product-market fit, pricing strategies, and distribution channels.
BlackStorm Consulting is also committed to providing partner benefits to Mongolian startups introduced by START Venture, helping them to get a head start in the SEA market. Additionally, BlackStorm will provide speaking and networking opportunities, allowing Mongolia startups to connect with relevant industry players and gain valuable exposure.
“We understand the importance of supporting and empowering Mongolian startups and scale-ups in order to help them reach their full potential. Our goal is to help Mongolian startups and scale-ups navigate the complex and dynamic landscape of Southeast Asia and achieve their goals in this exciting and rapidly growing market. We are deeply committed to providing the guidance and expertise needed to help these companies scale in the SEA market,” shared Jeslin Bay, CEO of BlackStorm Consulting.
The partnership between Zochil, Mongolia’s leading e-commerce platform, and Crowdshop, a dynamic discount technology company, through START Venture and BlackStorm Consulting, represents a significant step forward for the Mongolian startup community. Crowdshop’s dynamic discount technology will complement Zochil’s platform and provide valuable new features and services for Zochil’s customers.
“We are proud to facilitate this partnership and look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on the Mongolian startup community. This success case serves as a model for other Mongolian startups looking to scale and reaching new markets,” shared Jeslin Bay, CEO of BlackStorm Consulting.
While expanding into the SEA market can present challenges, these challenges can be overcome with careful planning, preparation, and the right execution. With the right strategies and support from START and BlackStorm Consulting, we believe more Mongolian startups can succeed in the SEA market and reach new heights of growth and success in the future.
