224 start-ups supported by Orange Fab
224 is the number of start-ups supported largely by Orange Fab, our global network of business accelerators with ground-breaking projects since March 2013. Orange is devoted to identifying, supporting and promoting the digital talents that will change how our customers live what is important to them tomorrow.
For a start-up, developing in the environment of one of our Orange Fabs can deliver a decisive boost to its development momentum, especially when it comes to access to markets and expert resources, thanks to the Orange presence in 28 countries, serving over 260 million customers.
Our twelve Orange Fabs in the US, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, together with our participation in our partnership with Korea Telecom and the Go Ignite global alliance with Deutsche Telekom, Singtel and Telefonica, give start-ups multiple opportunities to pitch their projects to high-level business movers and shakers, forge contacts, and ultimately benefit from an accelerated time to market for their pioneering solutions over one billion customers worldwide.
Develop the start-ups business
Working with Orange Fab is also a guarantee of enhanced visibility thanks to Orange’s participation at major industry events such as the Mobile World Congress, the Las Vegas CES, Web Summit, Viva Technology and at dedicated competitions. Business acceleration for the start-ups we support is a priority and a vocation for Orange, with a 50% transformation target for Orange Fabs operating in the countries where we are also a telecoms operator.
The core ambition of our strategy: to support 500 start-ups worldwide by 2020.
