Start-up Incubators

Entrepreneurs need guidance and funding in a safe but challenging environment. Start-up incubators do this and help to accelerate new ideas into viable businesses. Consilium is active in the Alacrity Foundation, a leading start-up incubator in the UK.

Business Telecoms

The way businesses communicate is changing rapidly with digital strategies, social networking, mobility and cloud computing. Telecoms providers to businesses are rising the challenge to create the next generation of communication services.

Secondary Telecoms Equipment Markets

Telecom operators are waking up to the opportunity to realise value from their used networking assets and to save money by buying used equipment where appropriate. This global market in used networking gear is highly fragmented and growing quickly leading to significant opportunities to those that can scale with the market.

Tech Recycling

Consumer electronic assets have value beyond their initial user. Companies that specialise in collecting, repairing and re-selling these items have created a global secondary market. But how will mobile operators in particular lower the cost of devices as smartphones are only getting more costly? This can be solved by a combination of realising the value of used phones and supply chain financing.
