Vodafone Mentorship
Each startup can meet with its mentor, who belongs to Vodafone’s network of employees and partners, to overcome obstacles and to create successful partnerships. These mentors, in addition to being experienced advisors, work as a bridge to connect the projects to Vodafone’s relevant areas.

Besides the pre-established mentoring network, whenever appropriate, we promote the linkage of startups to CEO’s, CTO’s, Investors or other partners who, through their experience or connections, can help with the project’s development.

Innovation Tool
All teams will be provided with the Vizibl tool, that was specifically designed to communicate directly with Vodafone and track all the important indicators for the development of a startup.

Every 6 months we promote a speed-mentoring session with all Vodafone Power Lab mentors, encouraging new synergies and ensuring that teams have the opportunity to access the full potential of this network.

Investment Meetup
Also every 6 months we gather investors in our space for a Demo Day where startups can showcase their products and find the right investment opportunities.
