OUR PROGRAM

 

To achieve our mission we use different tools and rely on internal and external synergies.

 

OUR TOOLS

  • CALL FOR STARTUPS

The Call for Startups is aimed at early stage startups. We offer them an Acceleration Programme to speed up their business development and their go-to-market. With the Call we look for startups in several different sectors. The broad scope of this type of call allows us to feel the pulse of the new digital trends.

  • CALL FOR PARTNERS

With the Call for Partners we look for ready-to-market startups and SMEs. The businesses selected access a Co-Creation Programme aimed at the customisation of their solution according to the corporate needs of TIM. The search for partners addresses a small number of specific sectors. This type of call favours the quick integration in the products and technology of TIM.

  • HACKATHON and  BOOTCAMP

With the organisation of hackathons and bootcamps we respond to the need of TIM and partner businesses for the fast generation of new ideas. This allows us to identify new solutions or to integrate already existing ones in a short time.

  • ONGOING SCOUTING

Throughout the year we are always open to meeting startups and SMEs with ideas, projects and digital solutions of interest to the corporate business, to assess potential collaborations.
