The Nokia Open Innovation Challenge 2015 is a call for innovative ideas, technologies, or business models, and an opportunity to collaborate with Nokia to advance innovations within the IoT domain. Through this challenge, ideas will be assessed and the winners get a chance to leverage Nokia’s global market reach and connectivity expertise. Others may be selected by Nokia Growth Partners (NGP), Nokia’s investment arm and co-sponsor of the challenge, which is actively investing in promising IoT companies.
Hossein Moiin, Executive Vice President and CTO for Nokia Networks, said: “Building networks for the programmable world requires a P-O-P approach; turning networks into Platforms, Orchestrating the ecosystem, and creating the required Partnerships. Today, the pace of innovation matters more and more in our daily lives and, at Nokia, we are showing our openness to incorporating innovations from all around us by launching our third annual Open Innovation Challenge. Our objective is to reach out to the brightest innovators and experts in the IoT domain so that we, together, can help build a future that will benefit us all. I am personally committed to champion the best innovations towards global market success together with Nokia.”
