Why we work with startups

We’re always on the lookout for the best ideas for new digital products and services, as well as talents to help grow and nurture. Increasingly, we find them in the young startup communities across our European and Asian markets. As a digital service provider, one of our central goals is to improve our customers’ lives through new innovations and great services, so helping our local startups thrive and scale is part of how we do this.

With early stage startups, we mainly look for startups to partner and/or invest in, in the core sectors of Communications, Connectivity and Security/Storage. Read more about our mandate. We also run accelerators in many of our markets – read more about Asia here or our latest IoT accelerator in Norway.  

For more mature companies, our Digital Businesses team is building strong vertical positions within AdTech, Internet of Things, Online Classifieds and Financial Services. Read more here.
