The search has started for the Class of 2023 - 15 private companies with ready-to-deploy technologies and services addressing telecom priorities will be introduced to their future partners from global carriers, telecom vendors and investors.


If you know a company working on a proposition that will improve connectivity, increase subscriber satisfaction, lower OPEX, or offer cutting edge services - from Core to Cloud to Edge and across AI, IoT, 5G, NetOps and more - we invite them to apply.

Companies selected to the Class of 2023 should expect:

  • Private Introductions to telcos covering North America, Europe, and Asia who are actively looking for new technologies to buy, sell, integrate, and invest in.
  • Speaker & Demo Opportunities at Demo Day with pitches, exhibits, and our proven MatchMaker Meeting Service.
  • Business-Tangible Meetings that open doors to future customers, partners, and investors.
  • Recognition & Validation with carriers, vendors, and VCs that your solution meets the market and potential customers are ready to take the first step with you.
  • Feedback & Insight from the telecom community gives you valuable insight on how, when, and with whom you can succeed in the market.

The nomination process is designed to be easy and painless (just enough to tell us who the company is, what they do, and why we should take notice). All nominations will be screened by our telco panel of judges.
