The local innovation scene will be featured both during a start-up session as well as during working group sessions of relevance. We’ve worked hard to identify companies focused on solutions that can add real value to the meetings and thus the telecom sector in general.
Although just recently starting to emerge as a tech hub, Austria has a vibrant start-up scene centered in Vienna and primarily focused on the IT-industry. Now considered the strongest country in Europe for public pre-seed funding due to initiatives such as the Vienna Startup Package, Austria's public sector initiatives and private sector financing opportunities are attracting entrepreneurs. With the arrival of both weXelerate and Talent Garden, it now has, respectively, the largest startup hub in Central Europe and access to Europe’s largest startup campus network.
In the light of GDPR, consent is essential for MNOs to be able to perform direct marketing, cross- and up-selling, as well as data monetization activities. By combining identification capabilities of mobile network operators with mobile advertising technology, Optink has developed a solution to collect consent in the faster and easiest way on MNO’s own websites, as well as 3rd party inventory. MNO can store the collected consent in their CRM and use them in a compliant way to display personalized offers or carry out other activities. For instance, the 1-click purchase function helps reduce churn and reaches subscribers whose contract is about to expire or being terminated. With our solution, network operators and their SMB customers can not only preserve revenue streams that are otherwise limited through GDPR but also improve sales processes by increasing contact frequency.
