BT Infinity Lab Programme - Friends, family & community


We're on the lookout for apps and devices for people at home or on the go.

Is your startup building a product that will help busy people stay and feel connected to their family, friends and communities? If the answer is yes, then this newly launched BT Infinity Lab Programme is for you!

We are really excited to announce a new BT Infinity Lab Programme - which is now back for it’s 10th run and is an amazing opportunity for startups to develop their products alongside, and get mentorship from BT.

David McDonald – Director for Broadband & Bundles explained: “Examples could be connected devices for different age groups, family safety apps, the linking of digital presence with the real world environment, also location information and services. They could include new ways of supporting or sharing life at home and on the go, or ideas to make the web more accessible. We are keen to investigate the breadth of new Consumer services.”

The Infinity Lab programme is part of BT’s Open Innovation ecosystem and aims to identify potential innovation partners. BT does not look to invest or take equity in the applicant companies as part of this process.

Deadline for applications is the 12th December 2016 and finalists will be invited to attend a Dragon’s Den style final in January 2017. The winning startup will then get:

  • Bespoke mentoring: support from BT research, engineering, commercial and marketing teams to help develop their product or service.
  • Support from BT to evaluate and trial the winning product or service
  • Six months’ membership of TechHub’s tech community with flexible desk space at their main London office and access to events
