Money
TEP provides startups a tool to raise capital primarily through angel investment from its angel members as well as venture capitals and financial institutions from its corporate members. TEP's regular presentation meeting offers startups the opportunity to meet with these investors.

Hands-on Support
TEP emphasizes hands-on support from its members who have extensive business experience. TEP's supporting members not only give startups advice but also assist them in their business executions through working together.

Community
Indecisiveness and uncertainties are inevitable for startups. Consequently, they may greatly benefit from talking with other entrepreneurs or people who have experience in management. TEP is equipped with such communities, and we can help startups connect with a broad network at home and abroad.

Mentoring
In order to address issues that are unique to each startup, TEP readily offers mentoring services that cover various aspects from management skills to expert knowledge. Participating in the mentoring session several times enables startups to improve their business efficiently.
