Innovation has been a part of Telefónica's DNA since its early days
We understand that the capacity of anticipating to the future,
understanding the needs of the Company and working to continue being pioneers in the digital world is fundamental for Telefónica. That’s why, from the different innovation areas we do work hard to execute our core business with excellency and consistence through time, while we explore and integrate successfully new projects and business.
All of these are supported by Internal Innovation (which we call Core Innovation), External (Open Innovation) and scouting and investments that go along with both of them. Core Innovation works to innovate over the assets of Telefónica, such as the networks, the data or the video. Open Innovation, through our Wayra Hubs, the open-public collaboration spaces Open Future, Activation Programme and Venture Studio, and our prototyping area, identifies this innovation in the entrepreneurial ecosystems of practically the entire world. Finally, our Scouting and Innovation Ventures searches for potential partners and startups that could be interesting to invest in because of them being a potential source of innovation.
This way, through our different approaches to innovation, and the talent and continuous work of our teams, in Telefónica we are positioned as pioneers of innovation, without which the digital world in which we live could not be understood.
