Vodafone xone in Italy is an accelerator of Italian startups and a place where Vodafone Customers can take part in the creation of new innovative services.
Every participating startup – recruited through our partner VCs and hosted in the new Vodafone Village in Milan – works side by side with an ad-hoc Vodafone team to offer its services on Vodafone distribution channels, from shops to online properties and marketing campaigns, leveraging Vodafone commercial know-how and technical enablers. Same development model has been applied also to internal ideas to promote entrepreneurship within Vodafone Italia.
Vodafone xone in Italy is part of a larger and growing network starting from the Silicon Valley-based Vodafone xone centre, set up in September 2011.
The startups accelerated by Vodafone xone in Italy are hosted in a special area in the Vodafone Village, the new headquarters of Vodafone Italia in Milan.
Vodafone Village, located at 240 Via Lorenteggio, is a modern 67,000 m2 ecosustainable complex that houses around 3,000 employees.
