Wayra: Corporate Venture Capital
We are a CVC that invests in seed stage startups with the capacity to generate business with Telefónica.
With Wayra Builder we capitalise on our technological talent, the patents developed internally and other assets that we also have at Telefónica to create innovative, pure digital startups that respond to global market needs that are not being sufficiently covered today.
Wayra is the most global, connected and technological open innovation hub in the world. It currently has 7 hubs in Europe and Latin America, investing in 10 countries with a clear objective: to help startups scale.
Through this platform, we help Wayra entrepreneurs and startups to grow, relying on our partners and Telefónica, offering benefits and credits that represent great savings for the startup.
