Telefónica Open Future

This incubation program launched by Telefónica Open Future, the Innovation and Financing and Internationalization Agency (ADE) of the Junta de Castilla y León, and USAL within the "Castilla y León Open Future" initiative , offers a place in the Crowdworking "Building Fonseca" for 10 selected innovative technology-based projects, including the following services:

  • Accommodation for the project promoter team at the crowdworking center associated with their challenge during the incubation process of the projects, arranging the necessary services and supplies.
  • "Training campus"
  • Personalized and individual work plan for each project.
  • Mentoring.
  • Professional support services by the Collaborating Companies and Partners of the Castilla y León Open Future program.
  • Support for financing search.
  • Quality Networking .
  • Internal Community.

At the Crowdworking Center "Edificio Fonseca" of the University of Salamanca, the maturity of these challenges will be fostered and promoted through a specific acceleration methodology, based on innovation and the experience gained by the promoters.

This initiative is aimed at teams of people (at least two members in each team) who present a project capable of becoming a new company, and is not an additional activity of an already established company that is more than two years old. In addition they must have a functional prototype and / or extensive knowledge in the technology from which the challenge can be faced.

The challenges are scored by the Partners and by the collaborating companies that are part of the Open Future Castilla y León program. Each challenge has different content, scope and characteristics. The submission of the application is associated with a specific challenge.

Specific challenges are raised by collaborating companies that propose and protect this technological challenge that will be solved by the entrepreneurs.

Likewise, generic challenges, raised by the Telefónica Open Future Program in Castilla y León, are contemplated for the development of a business idea that entrepreneurs will propose as a response to the challenge posed.
