Orange has launched an accelerator startup programme in Spain following its acquisition of Spanish telco Jazztel.
The Orange Fab accelerator programme for the Spanish market was launched in Madrid by Gervais Pellissier, CEO Delegate and Executive Director in charge of Europe for the Group, and Jean-Marc Vignolles, Chief Executive Officer of Orange Spain, in the presence of attendees including Victor Calvo-Sotelo, Telecom Deputy Minister, Jaime Garcia-Legaz, Spanish Secretary of State for Trade, and French Minister of Economy, Emmanuel Macron.
Start-ups will be hosted for three months by Orange Spain and benefit from mentoring, a workspace and access to Orange’s network of contacts nationally and internationally.
The programme will focus on the Internet of Things and Near Filed Communications.
“We hope that the Orange Fab programme can develop and spread to the whole of Spain with support and collaboration from the government. The Spanish economy is beginning to recover and Orange, which has supported economic growth in Spain for over fifteen years, wishes to continue its commitments to the country,” said Vignolles.
