Telefonica Think Big: A More Entrepreneurial Europe

Commitment by

Telefónica Europe

In 2012, Telefonica committed to launch a collection of progressive programs and investments that promote the power of technology, provide digital skills training to 250,000 people, and create a more entrepreneurial Europe. These five initiatives, collectively known as Think Big, were launched to address three critical issues facing European youth: a lack of job opportunities; a lag in European entrepreneurship; and a shortage of youth with digital skills. By encouraging innovative thinking, entrepreneurialism, and digital technology, Think Big will stimulate idea generation and youth-led business across the region.
