2017 xone Companies

On July 6, Vodafone officially unveiled the 10 companies that will be participating in Vodafone xone’s 2017 accelerator programme.

They launched the programme in 2016 with an ambition to find the best mobile and digital technologies in New Zealand, and support them to scale globally through Vodafone’s international network. In creating the Vodafone xone accelerator programme their goal was to contribute to the development of innovation in New Zealand and to bring the expertise that Vodafone has globally in driving technological innovation. Collectively and individually, the 2016 xonees succeeded in helping us to visualise these goals and what they could mean.

This year they are very excited and particularly interested to see where emerging companies are looking to innovate in quickly evolving areas such as health technology, IoT (Internet of Things), artificial intelligence and big data. The Vodafone xone Class of 2017 is inspiring – the quality of the people, the range of ideas and solutions that they have, and the passion – these are fantastic entrepreneurs that we are very enthusiastic to have the opportunity to work with.
