FAQ

Do you invest in Start-Ups?

No. We can not grant financial support and neither have Venture Capital.

You are an Accelerator Program: How many weeks does it take?

We’re not a „classical“accelerator program. We do not support during your founding stage. We support you to scale your solution. Many of our partner start-ups already passed a classical accelerator program and are ready to sell. We take over a little bit later and scale your ready business.

I do not have a German entity. Is it possible to cooperate?

That’s tricky. As a German subsidiary of Vodafone Group, we concentrate on the German market. A German entity is mandatory for you to cooperate with us.

I do not have an IoT- or Cloud-Solution, but I optimize e.g. processes. Can we cooperate?

Yes! Of course we are also always seeking for solutions, that can make us – Vodafone – smarter, faster or more efficient. Just contact us!
