The economic stimulus program is currently underway and rather underwhelming as it would apply to telecom companies. However, we see a real focus on “innovation at the edge.” Our speaker, Mr. William B. Wilhelm, Jr from Bingham McCutchen LLP, will talk about how both edge and cloud based services will be impacted by the FCC's new policies -from the FCC's inquiry into the Google Voice application for the iPhone to the FCC's inquiry into wireless innovation and investment and mobile wireless

The economic stimulus program is currently underway and rather underwhelming as it would apply to telecom companies. However, we see a real focus on “innovation at the edge.” Our speaker, Mr. William B. Wilhelm, Jr from Bingham McCutchen LLP, will talk about how both edge and cloud based services will be impacted by the FCC's new policies -from the FCC's inquiry into the Google Voice application for the iPhone to the FCC's inquiry into wireless innovation and investment and mobile wireless competition.

  • What will the new FCC’s policies actually accomplish?
  • Why is the FCC relevant to investors and innovators and (as Apple now realizes) "incumbents"
  • In what areas do entrepreneurs need to be cautious?
  • How are some of the new open proceedings relevant to telecom businesses?
  • Does Mr. Wilhelm have any tips on how companies can help use the current administration's technology objectives to further their own business and investment objectives?

Join the entrepreneurs from the Telecom Council’s Entrepreneur Forum to discuss the needs, technologies, trends, and policies that are affecting their businesses. Our Entrepreneur Forum meetings gather 25-45 entrepreneurs over lunch to network, discuss, and learn about issues affecting them and their businesses.
This lunch meeting is free to members and open to non-members for $50.
