Alien Sighting is our new program for high-potential referrals. Once your FOA is finalised, you will receive feedback from our experts as well as an opportunity to participate in this new program. If you know a start-up or an SME that develops or scales up high-impact innovations and can benefit from our services, your recommendation will be awarded. Once the suggested referral signs a service agreement with Alien, you will be eligible for a monetary referral bonus.
