Startups accelerate the innovation process with disruptive technologies and business models that, due to the high level of risk, are more difficult to develop within the limitations of the company.
For this reason, we collaborate with the most brilliant entrepreneurs to connect them to the organization and accelerate the innovation process. We are open to piloting the technologies and business models of the startups in our infrastructure and test their validity in a real-world setting. We provide them with sandbox-style open infrastructure in order to test their solutions, technological developments and business models.
Due to our international profile, we are open to collaborating with the best startups in the world. For this reason, we pay attention to the most active innovation hubs, like the Scandinavian countries, the U.S.A. and Israel. We also regularly participate in some of the most important events in the entrepreneur world, such as MWC, 4YFN, Slush, South Summit, and Ecomotion, among others.
Build Up! is our call for startups. This initiative was first launched in 2017 for the purpose of consolidating and taking the next step in our relationship with the entrepreneur ecosystem. And with the goal of making it one of the most attractive competitions for this audience. In each edition, we pose a challenge associated with one of our business units to the startup community. The purpose of this call is to find a solution to this challenge and test the winning solution in one of our infrastructures by means of a pilot project.
