The Munich Wayra Call is OPEN!! and we are recruiting new teams. Apply now until May 24th.

Wayra is Telefónica's digital startup accelerator. We are based in Munich but we also have accelerators in 11 countries where Telefónica operates a telecom business or a strong focus on digital entrepreneurship.


We are a business of Telefonica Open Future which encompasses all our interests in entrepreneurship and venture capital.


Wayra in Munich has been open since mid 2012 and in 2015 we merged our Prague business with Munich. Since 2012 we have successfully accelerated over 40 teams. Many have gone on to further investment funding, many have business with Telefonica and some, as is the nature of our industry, failed. Recently, we proudly managed our first exit to the mighty Rocket Internet.


Our mission is twofold: to bring innovation into our local operating business and to grow the value of our startup investments. Therefore we only invest and accelerate teams which will deliver both.


If you have an idea or a business which can help Telcos or delight our 46 million consumer customers in Germany and 300 million across our Telefonica network, then do get in touch.


And its not all business: we sponsor and host the number one startup community event in town, Let it Rip.
