One month after the Global relaunch and very close to pioneering the new strategy in Germany almost a year ago, Wayra decides, that it’s the right time to push themselves further and look for new business opportunities, being transparent with the challenges their core business is facing and the necessary transformations in the line of fire, because they understand that all companies face two choices: disrupt or be disrupted.
Fünf Jahre nach dem Start richtet der spanische Telekommunikationskonzern Telefónica den deutschen Ableger seines Start-up-Programms neu aus. Mit dem Relaunch adressiert Wayra nun Jungunternehmen, die bereits in einem fortgeschrittenen Stadium sind. Dabei werden sowohl die Zusammenarbeit mit den Start-ups wie auch deren Tätigkeitsfelder neu definiert.
