  • Verify through due diligence and joint business development with multinationals.
  • Follow-on by global multinational partners and JV investment & local business partnership
  • Joint investment by global joint investment VC partners
  • Translink's own investment model is not to simply review a company' business feasibility only from the investment review stage. But, it is to first identify the B2B needs of a Translink global network partner regarding the target company's technology and business to see if it is possible to progress partnership instantly after investment or joint investment together with partnership building, if necessary. By doing so, the model provides procedures to maximize the synergistic effect between the global partner company and investment target company.
  • In such a manner, Collaborative Global Venture Company Investment Model maximizes the value of investment target company and business value of global partners. Accordingly, joint investment is also actively pursued with global joint investment partners centering on the VCs in Silicon Valley, in order to make direct contribution to enhanced value of investment target firms.
  • Indeed, based on the Collaborative Global Venture Company Investment Model, Translink asked the strategic partners whether they wanted to build a partnership with or investment in each and every firm in the investment portfolio. Post-investment partnership building was conducted with 95% of them and over 50% have been receiving joint investment from their strategic partners.
