The Infinity Lab Programme builds on BT’s history of engaging with startups and encouraging open innovation. The programme is sponsored by BT’s Consumer, Business and Technology divisions and provides a front door to engagement with entrepreneurs and start-up community across the UK and beyond.
A number of events and competitions are running, each has an executive sponsor and is themed around a core business theme. Through the competitions BT will invite submissions from the UK and beyond with shortlisted finalists pitching to a panel of senior BT and industry representatives.
From this, one or more winners will then have the opportunity to work with BT for six months to further develop and test their product.
BT is partnering with TechHub, one of the leading independent co-working spaces in London and a key player in TechCity.
What can competition winners expect?
- 6 months of mentoring and support from BT in areas such as technology, legal and marketing
- 6 month residential or flexible memebrship to TechHub's global entrepreneur community
- Opportunity to showcase products in BT's dedicated Infinity Lab in London
- Access to BT's marketing reach to develop and test products and services with BT's customer base
