Our mission is to bring the future forward, by bringing the outside in. We are developing win-win partnerships with leading innovators.
That means connecting the start-ups which share our vision for the future with the people who can make it happen. We don’t think innovation is new, or happens on the side – it is central to everything we do and it could involve you, too.
But don’t just take our word for it, read our innovation stories.
Vodafone continues to push forward, to develop new technologies that empower people and create a better future. This has helped us to become one of the leading telecommunication providers today.
In a rapidly evolving world, there is no room for complacency. We’re always looking outwards for inspiration, collaboration and partnership opportunities.
Our innovation strategy is focused around our hot topics below, but if you have something completely new which aligns with our vision, we’d always be excited to hear about it.
