At Telefónica Venture Builder we follow a complete process with a 360º vision, from the identification of the idea until the launch of the MVP.
Identify and validate the idea
Venture Building projects are born from an exhaustive exercise of gathering ideas or technologies owned by Telefónica. Also through the exploration of other external sources we work with.
Once the idea has been selected, we carry out an exhaustive analysis that includes: technical, UX, product businesses and financial areas. The objetive is to work with the team to develop the idea and generate a business plan.
Create the work team
If the team does not exist, we identify the profile of the CEO defined in the previous step. For this, we rely on universities, business schools and above all on our extensive network of contacts.
The profiles vary, being necessary commercial profiles if a direct sale is needed and more technical profiles when we deal with ideas or technology that need product development.
Look for co-investors
All projects need a minimum amount of capital to be founded, depending on the type of project this amount will be different. For this reason, when we work on the business plan. We estimate the initial funds needed that will allow the startup to operate for 18-24 months without the need to raise a new investment round.
Establish the startup
Once we have identified the idea, built the team and secured the co-investors we found the company, supporting the CEO and structuring a proper captable that will help the startup attract other investors in the future.
Support MVP build and launch
From that moment on, Telefónica Venture Builder's multidisciplinary team helps the startup. If necessary, we can also help the CEO to complete the team looking for the profiles that will develop the minimum viable product (MVP). Besides, our experts can offer technical, design or product advice.
After a few months of MVP development, we launch the product on the market and continue to support the startup through its commercial deployment.
