Go Ignite, an alliance between four telecoms, announced last week the five winners selected from its inaugural call for start-ups launched at Mobile World Congress 2016, which attracted over 142 applications from the global start-up community. The winners were selected from the following categories: cyber security, big data analytics, content delivery and customer experience enhancement.
We were one of the five winning start-ups and will be provided with business development opportunities by the partners of the Go Ignite alliance – Deutsche Telekom (hub:raum), Orange (Orange Fab), Singtel (Singtel Innov8), and Telefónica (Telefónica Open Future). In addition, we will receive support such as mentoring, contacts, facilities, potential investment and access to a combined market of over one billion mobile customers across five continents.
“It is a great honor for Blueliv to be the winner of Go Ignite, a powerful scale up program for start-ups. We are grateful to be recognized as one of the most innovative and valuable companies in the cybersecurity landscape for MSSPs and Telcos” said Daniel Solís, CEO and founder of Blueliv. He went on to say that this recognition will enable Blueliv to further leverage the Threat Intelligence solution by increasing the company’s exposure to the world’s leading telco companies and enhancing the emerging external cyber threat protection of their customers. “We are innovators and paradigm-shifters. Blueliv is a company dedicated to fighting cybercrime in ways no one has ever done before and that’s why we sincerely appreciate this mention”, concluded Daniel.
