One of the main goals of The Telecom Council is to support innovation across the industry. The Council is always scouting for ideas, products, and services that may have a positive impact on the telecom industry and the telecommunications consumer.
We know that building a young company in this industry can be a long, expensive process and that is why we have teamed with several major industry tradeshows to highlight young, relevant companies and products and enable them to participate in these major tradeshows with demo space and extra publicity in a conservative way that fits a resource-constrained startup. We also know that established Telecom companies spend a lot of time, energy, and resources looking for these kinds of companies and innovations, so it makes sense to bring them together at major tradeshows.
Early-stage companies from any segment of telecom may apply, but only those whose applications are selected by our Service Provider and Investor Forum judges (member list here) as most innovative - those who enable significant technological, commercial, and operational improvements - will be invited to participate.
