Building Synergies Course

Start: Tuesday 30 November 2021

End: Wednesday 26 January 2022

There are several obstacles to creating partnerships between mobile operators and start-ups such as; speed, lack of formal processes, and inability to gather information. Therefore, the GSMA Ecosystem Accelerator team have created this four-part Building Synergies course to help mobile operators and start-ups better collaborate and partner up, to help grow technology ecosystems and scale digital solutions.

The Building Synergies course will help start-ups to:
1. Understand the industry – discover key mobile industry trends and how they affect their business
2. Understand your market – identify their market challenges and opportunities to address mobile operator needs
3. Pitch to mobile operators – identify the right stakeholders, craft a strong pitch and prepare for successful negotiations
4. Make the collaboration work – learn how to track progress and manage the mobile operator relationship

By the end of this course, attendees will understand how to pitch their product or service to a relevant mobile operator.
