Telcos Alliance

Description:

Go Ignite is the global alliance between hub:raum, Orange Fab, Singtel Innov8 and Telefónica Open Innovation, the open innovation arms of Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Singtel and Telefónica, which was created to connect the entrepreneurial ecosystems of Africa, Asia-Pacific, Australia, Europe, Latin America and the Midwest. The members of the alliance launch joint calls for proposals to select the best startups in their areas of interest. This is a unique opportunity for growing startups which are looking to develop their business, searching for internationalisation opportunities and seeking to gain visibility through the four telcos, which together have over 1.2 billion customers. The chosen startups receive business development opportunities with meetings, workshops and the opportunity to present their projects privately with the allied organisations' investment areas and business units. Additionally, the members of the alliance support the startups' international expansion plans.
