IBM PROGRAMS GET COMPANIES UP & RUNNING QUICKLY.

IBM announced three programs aimed at alleviating the problems plaguing startups today - finding financially friendly IT (information technology) fast, gathering sound, relevant business advice and building a successful global business.

* Quick Launch for e-business Ventures - a comprehensive package of IBM hardware, software, storage, education and support, backed by IBM Global Financing, that saves a startup from having to build their own infrastructure without breaking the bank;

* IBM Incubator Series - an initiative that focuses on teaming with leading incubators to deliver customized products, services and solutions to Internet business developers and startups around the world; and

* Going Global - a seminar series to share with startups what IBM has learned about doing business in more than 160 countries, enabling startups to tap markets around the world in Internet time.

"It's no longer just about getting to market first, its about building a sustainable, successful business," says Jim Corgel, general manager, IBM's Global Net Generation Business. "IBM has the technology and the business experience that startups can use to build a successful business; these programs we're announcing today deliver just what every startup needs."

Developed with IBM Business Partners and designed to address the unique needs of startup companies, Quick Launch is intended to build a relationship among startup e-business companies, IBM and IBM Business Partners as they drive to deliver their solution to market. The first IBM Business Partner to deliver Quick Launch to the marketplace is KeyLink Systems, the computer distribution business within Pioneer-Standard.

Going Global addresses both. Seminars for customers all around the world will teach them what they need to know about becoming truly global - international marketing and branding, building global business and customer relationships, finance and technology issues.
