Welcome to Fab Israel program

Orange finds, supports and promotes the best digital talents of today who will influence the way we will live what’s essential in our life tomorrow.

The chosen Orange start-up initiatives will have the potential to transform for the better what matters most to people: the way we communicate, the way we entertain ourselves, the way we work and even the way we manage our money.

At Orange, innovation is at the heart of our growth strategy, an innovation that we want to be open to the largest possible ecosystem, where start-ups play a key role.

With Orange Fab Israel, our objective is to closely engage with the start-ups in Israel in order to accelerate innovation within Orange. The key word is: business acceleration. We have designed a program where innovation teams and business units at Orange can directly engage with Israeli start-ups working on their immediate product and service development needs.

The engagement process is focused on scouting missions. For each mission, we bring operational teams and its decision makers to Tel Aviv to meet with start-ups in pitching sessions organized over two days. Each mission has its own focus and the start-ups invited to pitch are pre-selected together with our partners in Israel. A successful mission is when a few solid contacts are set to engage in a POC, a co-innovation project or a commercial deal.

Mission themes follow Orange business and innovation priorities: Connected Health, Cyber Security, Smart City, Advanced Network & Connectivity, Internet of Things…

Once a year we organize a demo day in Tel Aviv with executives from Orange and all the Israeli start-ups collaborating with us: an opportunity to meet each other, to share about business, trends, successes, and to continue boosting co-innovation within the Orange Fab Israel community.
