The Vodafone Talent Contest 2018 Call for Innovation is actively looking for startups interested in the entrepreneurial discovery of opportunities and markets triggered by emotions measurement and analysis, and their activation in Customer Journeys. Vodafone believes that start-ups are an essential part of an innovative ecosystem. We have identified clear market needs in the emotions area

“Emotions, the new way of knowing more about our customers”
Vodafone wants to apply sentiment analysis to improve customer journey experience. We’re looking for candidates with a scientific methodology that allows them to quantify the level of emotional attachment that clients have to brands, as well as the predominant emotions at each point of contact, in order to enhance positive feelings and neutralise negative feelings with each interaction. That way, brands can provide the best customer experience possible.

If your team develop a sufficiently attractive business concept and MVP product based on these or other needs related to design, production, and distribution of emotions measurement/analysis and activation in Customer Journeys, the Vodafone Talent Contest 2018 invites you to submit your proposals following the procedure for Expressions of Interest described below

Applications can be submitted by any startup company worldwide that has a commercial or MVP solution or product related to emotions analysis and application

The deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest for the 2018 Call for Innovation is July 13th, 2018. The Vodafone evaluation team will identify a maximum of 20 Startups to fully present their solutions. The competition is held on TheCUBE Madrid and Vodafone Labs in Madrid, Spain and it is organized by Vodafone España and MIOTI
