The MarketLink Program provides the opportunity for growing companies to initiate and develop strategic relationships with leading multi-national corporations. Qualified companies will be selected through a series of social meetings. They will be introduced to top level executives from multi-national corporations focusing on new products and technologies. All the arrangements are free.

CommNexus VCLink program provides selected executives and entrepreneurs the opportunity to meet with the managing partners of multinational venture capital firms in a relaxed environment. Visiting managing partners describe their firms view of the market and in what area they are currently looking to invest. Throughout the meetings, both the entrepreneurs and the VCs can find potential partners.
