Wordnerds joins an elite list of young companies who represent the cutting edge of communication innovation and the future of the teleco industry.
Wordnerds has been nominated for Telecom Council's Innovation Showcase Class of 2020, joining an elite list of young companies from across the globe.
The Innovation Showcase supports Telecom Council’s ongoing mission of matching high-potential communications start-ups with strategic-fitting telcos, vendors, investors and potential partners.
Through online and offline meetings, introductions and matchmaking, the Telecom Council present global communication service providers and vendors to the innovations that are pushing the industry forward – by connecting telcos, vendors and investors from across the globe to startups, new technologies, and entrepreneurs.
Where Telecom Meets Innovation
The search began in January and the final list was decided by Telecom Council's Analyst panel. Applications were screened and awarded points based on each company's potential to disrupt the communications market and their fit with the Service Provider Forum members' innovation priorities for 2020.
Each company has the opportunity to pitch Telecom Council members and other interested telcos, telecom vendors, communications investors and potential strategic partners.
Innovation Showcase Demo Day
This year the event has been moved online due to the Coronavirus - in place of the usual San Fran based showcase. Taking place on 21 May, the demo day will introduce the companies to the Telecom Council's community, where the class will pitch, offer virtual demos, and participate in pre-arranged, one-on-one meetings with tech scouts from across the communications landscape.
The aim of the event is to offer a glimpse of the innovations shaping the future telecommunications landscape, and gives insight into how telcos scout for, qualify, and implement technology.
Joining 13 other companies from the UK (London), US, Canada, Singapore, Israel and Italy, this is tremendously exciting for us and potentially a fantastic opportunity.
With the arrival of 5G, it brings new opportunities and trends for telecommunication companies. Understanding what customers actually want and think will be key for companies so they can capitalise on the new infrastructure to attract and retain customers.
