TC3: Telecom Council Carrier Connections 2016


CARRIERS IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Get your hands on innovation roadmaps from 30 global carriers
Carriers around the world bring attention to their innovation priorities—to promote their innovation activities throughout the ecosystem, to attract the entrepreneurs and developers they need, and to promote innovation inside and outside their labs. For nimble companies, this is an ideal venue to learn the carrier's roadmaps, innovation needs, gap analysis, and where you can fit your company into their plans in order to facilitate faster dealmaking.

STARTUP PITCHES & DEMOS: Review and share new innovations built to improve communication services
12 startups will present investment and partnership opportunities to telecom investors—from carriers and vendors to angels and venture capitalists—who make financial investments, invest time and/or resources in a company or its products and services. Another 40 companies will showcase their innovation in the demo pavilion. Come get your hands on the hottest new innovation.

INNOVATION DISCUSSIONS: Join technology discussions with the executives you need to influence
The Telecom Council is well aware of the challenges in working with carriers or any large company. It's not easy...but our goal is to make it easier. We recommend that every path to market be considered and explored, with no religious fervor. We welcome you to our technology discussions on the spotlight stage to find ways to bridge the gap and to build relationships with the ecosystem.

SPIFFY AWARDS 2016: Recognize the accomplishments of peers as telecom innovation takes stage
The SPIFFY Awards is an annual ceremony that recognizes the best communication startups from the year prior. Each year our Service Provider Forum, SPIF, and the wider Telecom Council, reviews around 200 young telecom companies. By simply being invited to SPIF, startups are already filtered as young companies that have the ideas, relevance, and traction that most appeal to communication service providers from around the globe. Award categories include innovation, creativity, emergent entrepreneurship and competitive excellence.

Last year alone, The Telecom Council connected over 2,000 executives from 1,500 communication companies and 60 fixed and wireless carriers across 40 meeting topics. TC3 is the Council's Annual Summit which has been drawing executives for 9 years from around the globe who are charged with discovering and delivering the innovation to build tomorrow's communicationsolutions.

Speakers are responsible for the innovation strategies and activities of their respective carriers. The operator representatives who manage innovation - from developer programs and labs facilities to venture investing, will be available to answer our questions:

  • What innovations are operators looking for?
  • How does a young company work with a large operator?
  • What kind of partnerships do carriers prefer?
  • Who are the right people inside the carriers to properly receive, handle, and implement new ideas?
  • What developer and partner programs are available?

As we answer the questions above, this summit will help you refine your path to market, make the connections that can accelerate your business, facilitate that interaction, and grow your long term network.
