Kolkata | Leading telecom service provider Vodafone would actively encourage start-ups in the mobile applications arena as part of facilitating young entrepreneurs, MD and CEO Marten Pieters said.
We have created a new platform for young entrepreneurs who have developed mobile apps, Pieters said at Infocomm 2014 here today. He said that Vodafone would offer such start-ups to plug in their apps and help them gain access to 75-million-odd subscribers of the telecom firm’s network in India.
Stating that the telecom sector was contributing to Indian society in a big way, Pieters said the industry had created both social and economic development in the country by offering huge employment opportunities.
