EMPLOYEES

We believe innovation is a skill, not a talent. We employ a continuous, interactive, experiential learning and creation program called “Shape the Future”. We empower and fund our employees to incubate their startup ideas and take them to product-market fit and scale or spin out.
We create value.

Daring | Responsive | Inclusive | Venturing | Ethical
  • “STF enables its portfolio of startups to act with the irrational exuberance required to innovate and break paradigms. It is difficult for a corporate startup incubator to promote that type of revolutionary mindset when the parent usually has more of an evolutionary mindset, but Tata Communications STF has managed to do it.”
