There is a hoard of startups being led by founders and employees known for their hustle. Building a successful company for a long-term sustainable business is no easy task. It is perhaps the reason why 90 percent of the startups fail. While the product/service, business model, founding team, and target audience are some crucial factors pertaining to a startup’s success, there is another side to which we don’t actually pay attention. It is the Legal & Regulatory facet of running a business!

Though, as global sentience towards collaborative efforts rise, solving problems like adequate funding, incubation, legal & regulatory support is proving to be feasible. Thanks to the initiatives taken by Corporate Mountains like Thomson Reuters who are constantly working in that direction. 

‘TR Ignite’ is here

Thomson Reuters has deployed a new initiative to incubate technology startups in the Asia-Pacific region. The aim of this partnership with Thomson Reuters is not just to provide boost to the technology, but to disrupt tomorrow’s tech solutions today.

TR Ignite is an opportunity for startups in Asia-Pacific to tap into Thomson Reuters technology innovators, deep industry insights and market reach via a tailored partnership program.
