About us

Innovation has been a part of Telefónica's DNA since its early days

We understand that the ability to anticipate the future, to understand the needs of the company and to work to remain pioneers in the digital world is key. Therefore, from the innovation areas we strive to execute with excellence and consistently over time our core business, while exploring new technologies, projects and businesses that provide us with the capabilities to reinvent ourselves.

We support all of this with internally created innovation and with innovation developed externally by third parties in which we invest or with whom we collaborate closely.

Core Innovation works to innovate over the assets of Telefónica, such as the networks, the data or the video, through the development of proprietary solutions.

Open Innovation, through our Wayra Hubs, our network of funds via Telefónica Ventures, the open-public collaboration spaces Open Future and Venture Studio connects Telefónica with local and global entrepreneurship to drive innovation coming from startups and scaleups to our business. In addition, we share our platform, knowledge and infrastructure with third parties to generate joint opportunities. In addition, we share our platform, knowledge and infrastructure with third parties to become significant partners for future game-changers.

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.
