Grow your start-up with the power of four leading telcos. Ignite a billion customers.

Who we are

Go Ignite, established in December 2015, is an alliance between hub:raum, Orange Fab, Singtel Innov8 and Telefonica Open Future, the innovation arms of Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Singtel and Telefonica. It is the first global alliance of its kind in the world and has been established to connect the start-up ecosystems across Africa, Asia Pacific, Australia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.

Go Ignite offers innovative start-ups the opportunity to commercialise their innovations faster and scale their business outside their home market. Benefits include insights into different markets, introductions to partners, the use of co-working spaces and access to the companies’ operating businesses. Selected start-ups may also have the opportunity to gain access to the operators’ collective customer base, which includes both enterprises and consumers and over one billion mobile customers across five continents. Ultimately, the aim of the programme is to connect top start-ups with the business units of the Go Ignite Alliance members, facilitating access to the Go Ignite businesses and customers, and offering business development opportunities.
