Have we done it before? yes

Elisa Up (previously Elisa Startup Partnerships Team) was founded four years ago. However, Elisa had been cooperating with startups for many years before that. Right now Elisa has over 100 ongoing partnerships with startups.

Elisa is more than just a telco

In the telecom industry, innovation is what keeps us competitive. The industrial model and the way we work is changing, so we have to and we want to be more dynamic and creative. Let’s think globally, act more personally and use technology more efficiently!
