We establish strategic win-win partnerships by investing financially or by buying services from innovative digital entrepreneurs.


Antwerp-based company November Five is launching Spencer, a digital workplace assistant for employees. The promising and growing tech company serves major corporations which employ more than 2,000 people, and its clients already include Telenet, Proximus, and DEME. Spencer alleviates a pain that all employees understand: having to switch between different programs to take holiday, set your out of office, schedule a meeting, or file an expense note.

Boosting business productivity

The latest Forrester report (2016) shows that 62% of employees procrastinate when tasks require logging in to different systems. To boost business productivity, Telenet invested in Spencer: a mobile application that integrates a range of business tools into one easy-to-use interface. At Telenet, Spencer will become the personal assistant to all 3,200 Telenet employees.

Investing in sustainable growth

The telecom and media sector changes rapidly. That’s why investing in promising digital solutions like Spencer is an important part of Telenet’s business growth and innovation strategy. Next to helping Telenet to boost business productivity, Spencer may very well be added to Telenet’s product offer in the near future.
