From Wayra -Telefónica Open Innovation- we have been accompanying the Telefónica Group for more than 15 years in the search for innovative startup solutions that allow us to address the great challenges we face as a company, as an industry and as a key player in social progress.

With seven spaces in Europe and Latin America, and teams in nine countries, we help entrepreneurs to scale globally and connect them with Telefónica’s business units to generate joint opportunities.

Starting with the repositioning driven in 2018, Wayra is transformed into a more complete project: the Corporate Venture Capital fund, with a unique venture-client formula that helps startups to scale globally, offering them access to Telefónica’s network of 380 million customers.

The experience acquired over all these years also allows us to accompany corporations and other agents in entrepreneurship ecosystems in the implementation of open innovation and investment strategies.

A history of evolution and maturity that has made us a company that brings together under the same brand and strategy all the Telefónica Group’s startup investment initiatives and that the market recognises as a leading player in Corporate Venture Capital in the entrepreneurship ecosystems in which it operates.
