Corporate companies have already understood that the best innovation comes from outside. Users, citizens and, especially, startups are changing the way innovation shapes all kind of businesses.

The Corporates & Startups Open Innovation Challenge is a new initiative organized by ACCIO and hosted by 4YFN that will be taking place in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress 2019.

Corporates want to be involved in the most disruptive solutions for their challenges. Hence, they offer startups their facilities to test new technologies, their infrastructures and their customer access. They are willing to invest in the solution or to integrate their technology.

You can send your applications until 14 January. Early applicants will be considered positively!

You can apply for as many challenges as solutions you think you have. Just make sure your startup meets the challenge conditions.

The corporate will review your application. If the solution is attractive for their challenge, they will agree to meet you at 4YFN in Barcelona.

The organization will contact you to give you feedback on your participation.

There is no cost for participating. If one or more of your applications are accepted, you will have to attend the "4YFN Corporate and Startups one-to-one meetings event" on 26 February in Barcelona.

If you don’t have the badge to attend 4YFN, we will offer you a 70% discount to get it. With it, you will be able to visit the 4YFN Congress and you will also have the opportunity to attend the last day of the GSMA Mobile World Congress.

The Corporates & Startups Open Innovation Challenge is aimed at innovative startups and SMEs from all over the world.

Please, review the conditions and requirements set out in each challenge and only apply for those with which you are sure you comply.

Remember that if selected, you will have to be present at the Barcelona 4YFN Congress on 26 February.
