Telecom Council Innovation Showcase

With 20 years' experience introducing communications startups to communications service providers and vendors, the Telecom Council has helped countless young companies get their first deal, fill a funding round, even start relationships that ended in acquisition. Every Spring, our members select a group of communications startups to watch, and dedicate a day to introducing them to the telco, vendor, and investor community.
