Vodafone Start-up Support: The Journey to Success
As Vodafone belongs to the Market Leaders of Telecommunication, we can draw on a huge Network of potential Clients for your Product or Service. This provides an excellent Gateway for further Actions. In the first Phase, Initial Contacts will be made actively via Partners or Events, further through a well-made Website. Secondly, your Strategic Fit will be evaluated with a Focus on the respective Industry. The results will then be introduced to the Vodafone Department. Once your Start-up has successfully completed the strategical Phase, things are getting serious. We'll welcome you to the first Meetings to be hold together and you'll be given the Chance to use the Innovation Park Labs to develop or test your Start-up's Prototype. In the Initiation Phase we will be planning a Pilot that will eventually be executed. Finally, the commercial roll-out will be implemented. Throughout the process, we see ourselves as Partners who combine their Strengths to realize an innovative Product or Service. Let's push forward and create a better future!
