With the rise of big data and the rapid adoption of remote working, cloud computing has never been this crucial in business development and is often the determining factor between a successful startup and an unsuccessful one. A crucial factor underpinning these startups’ successes is their ability to partner with an established organization that can provide deep industry expertise within cloud computing and the opportunity to experiment, refine, and scale solutions to a sizable customer base.

Huawei Spark was established to offer opportunities for deep-tech startups to reach new markets and clients as well as co-create with Huawei. Selected startups will get access to a wealth of cloud resources and the opportunity to sell to Huawei, sell through Huawei’s marketplace such as the Huawei App Store, and sell with Huawei global sales force. In addition, startups will get regular coaching and mentoring from enterprise leaders, venture capital firms, government agencies, and Huawei executive sponsors, with a  potential behind-closed-door introduction to top-tier VC, large corporates, and government agencies.

Join our program to gain the opportunity to develop innovative solutions that solve the challenges to meet consumers’ ever-evolving needs. Leveraging Huawei’s expertise and resources, we believe that promising startups can drive industry transformation and build the next generation of products that ultimately benefits consumers.
