CARRIER ROADMAPS
At TC3, global carriers talk about their external innovation focuses for the next year, to market their innovation programs throughout the ecosystem, attract entrepreneurs and developers, and open the door to new products and services that will benefit their networks and subscribers.



1-ON-1 MATCH MAKING
Our TC3 MatchMaker is an online tool that facilitates exclusive meetings between attendees and our members, speakers, sponsors and meeting hosts. Last year, our operator and vendor community took 1100 matchmaker meetings from 1400 meeting requests.
 

START UP DEMOS
Meet startups with network-ready products and services who are seeking carrier partners to take them to market. This is the one time each year our Service Provider Innovation Forum (SPIF) meeting is open to the public.


PATHS TO MARKET DISCUSSIONS
Whether working with operators or not, all companies have to investigate alternative paths to market. We'll discuss working with vendors, over-the-top, corporate venture capital, and incubator and accelerator programs.
 
CASE STUDIES
TC3 includes several case studies of telcos with their startup and vendor partners to discuss the innovation and partnership process—what went right, along with how and why the deal was made.


VENDOR SPOTLIGHT
To compliment the main stage's focus on business strategies, specific innovation and technologies are highlighted on our Spotlight Stage, with a variety of panels, case studies, and executive fireside chats.


 
INVESTOR PITCHES
Hear from early stage communication startups who are ready to take funding to the next stage. This is our only 2016 Investor Forum meeting to be open to the public, which normally meets quarterly.
10TH ANNUAL SPIFFY AWARDS & RECEPTION
SPIFFY Awards recognize the best startups who presented at Telecom Council in 2016/17. The winners are selected by Telecom Council Service Provider members based on innovation, opportunity and viability.
