Establishing a novel strategy and development approach for the first mobile virtual network operators in KSA

Red Bull MOBILE (RBM) is looking for a partner to support them with their expansion to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), the largest economy in GCC. KSA is currently going through unprecedented transformation, redefining the country's economic and social context.
Red Bull MOBILE (RBM), a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), re-imagines the traditional mobile service offerings by creating an ecosystem where the users become a part of the wider Red Bull community. RBM builds a value proposition around people who value active lifestyle and connectivity, mastering the customer experience by providing access to exclusive events and a wide range of partnership offers to its network users. The company is actively pursuing a growth strategy and identified Saudi Arabia as one of the key strategic markets to enter. Monstarlab’s in-depth experience in the region and telecommunications ensured that we were able to support RBM’s ambitions in establishing the MVNO in the Kingdom.
RBM KSA was one of the first international MVNO brands in the Kingdom to launch, under the concept of “Unusual as usual”


Together we embarked on an exciting 18-months journey from idea up to delivering the brand to the market with the launch of operations. The project included two distinct phases:

Negotiated a collaboration agreement with an incumbent MNO, established an investor group and created a comprehensive bid book for RBM to bid for an MVNO license; outlining the value proposition, business and operating models, financial analysis, and go-to-market strategy

Leveraged our experienced team to launch the first MVNO operator in KSA combining internal and external resources. We acted as a bridge between RBM and the emerging local organization, providing strategic support in the development of all core business areas, particularly on commercial strategy, sales, marketing, distribution and customer service.
