TIM is presenting 10 start-ups from its TIM WCAP open innovation programme at Barcelona’s MWC 19, the world’s leading mobile phone event, as it continues to underscore its leadership in technological innovation and the development of 5G services and cutting-edge digital solutions.

The projects cover a variety of areas of application, including entertainment, emerging ‘e-sports’, personal finance, digital commercial solutions, mobile payment and AI-based Internet of Things solutions. These innovations are the result of TIM‘s commitment to creating an open ecosystem, where new digital ideas can find space to grow and become real businesses, thanks also to the support of many partners.

TIM WCAP’s stand is inside GSMA Innovation City and is an immersive experience dedicated to open innovation and start-ups. It focuses on new trends in network technologies, digital enablers and business models that combine 5G technology, Big Data and artificial intelligence to develop solutions and services that will have a big impact on daily life and doing business, as well as affecting industry, public administration and entertainment.

In proof of its commitment to creating a centre of Italian innovation, TIM has launched four TIM WCAP Innovation Hubs (in Milan, Bologna, Rome and Catania), where new digital ideas can grow into businesses.
