FOCUS AREAS

Future Connectivity

The next gigabit society is coming, enabled by future connectivity. We are looking for startups working with massive broadband connectivity (5G) or ultra low latency (Edge), campus networks, smart narrowband technology (LTE-M, NB-IoT) or further enhancing their solutions with AI.

Connected Life & Work

Soon, everything around us will be connected, from our homes to our workplaces and beyond. We’re excited to work with startups in the areas of smart home, voicification, entertainment, AR/VR, consumer IoT (tracking and tracing, wearables) and industrial IoT (efficient manufacturing, logistics, smart buildings)

The Next Next

Next stop: transformative new tech with the potential power to disrupt telco! After all, innovations like blockchain, material and neuroscience, human machine interfaces and quantum computing are all areas which have barely been explored. Surprise us with the “next next.”
