OUR MISSION AND VALUES

We believe that innovation can come from anywhere. Our mission at Wayra UK is to democratise entrepreneurship, both in London and throughout the UK. We help to identify, develop, promote and scale UK-based start-ups by leveraging Telefónica’s global resources.

As part of Telefónica Open Future_, a global innovation network open to partners, Wayra UK is committed to the internationalisation and scalability of UK-based start-ups, including those founded by migrant entrepreneurs and by people from diverse backgrounds.

With a strong belief in partnership, we openly collaborate with anyone who realises that innovation cannot be done in isolation. This includes companies that recognise that corporate acceleration is an emerging, growth-hacking solution not only for scaling start-ups, but also for solving large-scale problems facing society.

Open

We believe that open innovation will change the world. We are committed to collaborating with anyone that has new ideas, technologies and business models that help generate growth, create positive societal impact and fuel innovation.

Inclusive

We celebrate diversity and globalisation. In the digital universe in which we operate, borders are imaginary and unnecessary limitations on human potential and aspiration. We’re committed to promoting diversity and working with others that support this aim.

Accessible

Talent isn’t limited by geography, but sometimes opportunity is. True prosperity and growth can only be achieved if access to entrepreneurial opportunities is democratised. We’re committed to working with local and regional partners to reinvigorate entrepreneurial ecosystems and energise local economies.
