Apply for a Chance to Take Part in the Next Vodafone Dig

At Vodafone Group Innovation, we are passionately committed to accelerating Vodafone’s journey to become a truly digital telco. This means being innovation hungry, open to experimenting and taking risks, and embracing collaboration with trail-blazing start-ups.

The Vodafone Dig was a global search to find the latest and greatest start-ups who can help us respond to live business challenges and accelerate our digital transformation. We talked to senior leaders across five functions – Marketing & Sales, Customer Care, Human Resources, Finance and Enterprise Solutions – to unearth the hottest topics, discover the pain points and uncover areas ripe for innovation.

Armed with this information, we then set out to find the world’s best entrepreneurs at the point where they have proven tech, are ready to scale and will help us get to the future faster. We identified a list of 100 pioneering start-ups with solutions which can respond to our needs.

From this Top 100 list, we further whittled down to a rockstar list of Top 20 start-ups, who we believe have the potential to help transform Vodafone. All 20 of those finalists are exhibiting at unbound London on the 18 & 19 July, over half have numerous live pilots underway and the opportunities are endless.

We hope that meeting the Vodafone Dig Top 20 will inspire you with the art of the possible. If you’d like to be considered for a similar opportunity next year, please complete the typeform below.
