All startups who are invited to present at a Telecom Council meeting have been identified as a promising telecom company. From among these, some young companies stand out for their innovation, market opportunity or quantifiable interest among the Council’s 25 global Service Providers including AT&T, British Telecom, DoCoMo, France Telecom/Orange, Swisscom, Verizon, Vodafone and many other fixed and wireless carriers from Europe, Asia, and North and South America listed on the Telecom Council website.
At the SPIFFYs, we recognize, the best of the best. Award winners will be announced by members of the Council’s Service Provider Forum in a public ceremony, on Sept 12th 2012 (the end of TC3 Day 1) in Sunnyvale, CA.
Plan to join us for the SPIFFY Awards to recognize some outstanding startups, and enjoy executive-level networking - both Day 1 & Day 2 conference passes include participation, but a separate registration option is available too.
2012 SPIFFY Awards are proudly sponsored by Tata Consultancy Services.

This award recognizes the company that advanced the noble cause of improving telecommunications.
