For startups


Who are you and what can we accomplish together?

Is your startup in the acceleration phase, ready for a big move, and in need of a partner you can trust to get you scaling? Instead of investing a lot of time on complicated procurement processes and finding the right people to talk with, startups should focus on taking their business to the next level. Sopra Steria already have the clients and the network you need to get you there. 

Large organizations search for new ideas and solutions every day. Still, it can be a challenge for a small startup and a large organisation to find common ways of working and collaborate together. 

That’s where our global ecosystem initiative Sopra Steria Scale up comes in. We know that our clients are searching for new ideas and solutions every day, and we also know that startups have already started building the right solutions that might be a good fit. Our industry- and client expertise mean we can identify needs and challenges and put your start up together with our clients where your solution might be exactly what our clients need.  

Our goal is not only to bridge the gap, but also take an active role in the collaboration project facilitating the innovation process and focus on scalability from day one and build win-win cases. Does this touch your heart? 
— Then Sopra Steria Scale up is right for you and we look forward to talk. 


Why Scale up?

We don’t just want to help our clients. We also want to build a great partnership with your startup, and help you grow.

Organisations search for new ideas and solutions every day. Still, it can be a challenge for a small startup and a large organisation to find common ways of working and cooperating.

That’s where the Sopra Steria team comes in. We want to close the gap between big clients and small startups, and make collaboration easier for everyone.

Our clients wants us to be proactive. Based on our industry- and client knowledge we can also identify startup solutions that could be a good fit for our clients where our client proximity mean that we together with the startup can design a use case and get this validated from the clients.
