The GSMA have just released a guide aimed at start-ups interested in collaborating with mobile operators in emerging markets. The GSMA Ecosystem Accelerator programme and Match-Maker Ventures teamed up to produce this guide, which walks you through the process of securing a partnership with a mobile operator in your market and answers the questions that will arise along the way.
While preparing this guide we interviewed representatives of four mobile operators operating across emerging markets (Etisalat Nigeria, Orange Middle East Africa, MTN, Dialog Axiata, and Veon).
This video captures their answers to two key questions:
– What do you give the most importance to when assessing start-ups?
– What advice would you give to start-ups looking to work with you?
