Barcelona (E), August 2018 - TELANTO is a technology startup based out of Barcelona, Spain, that operates a global network of university and industry partners. Led by its founders, Christian Acosta-Flamma and Timo Kerzel, TELANTO is on a mission to disrupt the traditional forms of university-industry collaboration and change the face of recruiting.
Since its founding in 2015, TELANTO has been providing innovative answers to companies’ problems. The goal is to bridge the gap between universities and industry to promote healthy collaboration. By connecting students to real-world problems, education is improved with action learning, and companies find innovative answers that would otherwise be unavailable. TELANTO joins industry and academia in a manner that has never been seen before and that brings unparalleled innovation. The idea behind TELANTO is to connect the business world to academia through challenges. Companies present challenges to professors, who then integrate them into their academic programs. Students engage with these challenges and propose solutions to the challenge sponsors. The startup has created a digital platform to support and maximise the potential of university-industry collaboration. Challenge-based learning benefits students’ development and allows companies to harness the potential of innovative talent. Benefiting students, universities, and businesses, TELANTO plans to revolutionise education and talent sourcing.
