We are established business with a hardware or software solution
Great stuff. Firstly lets explain our process. We try and make it as quick and easy as possible so that we don’t waste each others time:
Complete the online application form.
V-Accelerator will get back to you via email in 1-2 working days if we believe that your idea is worth taking further.
We sign an NDA. It is not an onerous one but there are a lot of cool things happening in the lab that sometimes we like to keep quiet.
We will have a meeting in the labs and discuss your product. If the product has potential, V-Accelerator will present the most appropriate business model for the initiative. This is generally a vendor type of relationship.
V-Accelerator identifies the best stakeholders for the product or service and together with the relevant Vodacom business unit the business case is assessed.
If there is appetite to market the product or service, it is necessary to become a formal supplier. This process is simplified and speedy through V-Accelerator. This makes it possible to commence commercially with the product or service whilst beginning the formal process of becoming a ‘Vodacom Vendor’ in parallel.
