ABOUT THE SHOWCASE

Building a young company in this industry can be a long, expensive process and that is why we run an Innovation Showcase every year to highlight young, relevant companies and products and enable them to gain access to the people in the industry they need to connect with to move their business forward.

We also know that established Telecom companies spend a lot of time, energy, and resources looking for these kinds of companies and innovations, the Showcase allows these companies to see many new and disruptive technologies all in one place.

CLASS OF 2017

The Telecom Council's Innovation Showcase matches well-positioned, early-stage communications startups with strategic fitting telcos, vendors, investors and potential partners in a day of pre-arranged, private meetings.
