“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.”
