For innovators and investors in 5G+ infrastructure and applications – at this online event you’ll hear from KDDI Europe and VC firm Global Brain among others about opportunities in next generation networks and solutions and see ground-breaking company pitches from: Accelercomm, Novocomms, Beam Connectivity, Mafic, Mesmerix, and SwipeVideo plus much more.
The next generation of communications is set to make unprecedented demands on networks and will challenge the ways in which telecoms companies manage load, compete on user-retaining quality of service levels, and can guarantee ‘critical infrastructure’ levels of security.
Recent venture investment trends reveal just how innovation from start-ups and scale-ups is targeting the most valuable of these opportunities with capital flowing to solutions that will radically improve the efficiency of telecom network infrastructure and support applications that enable telecom companies to reach more subscribers in their homes, cars, cities, and even in virtual reality simulations of these places.
Alongside the Japan External Trade Organisation, we are delighted to present this international innovation showcase of opportunities across our respective networks of entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, and corporate partners.
At this event we will also be launching an exclusive Telecommunications Collaborative Working Group. It will enable growth companies in this sector to build peer to peer connections, find collaborations, R&D and investment opportunities and shape key decisions in the national innovation infrastructure. If you are interested in joining this group – come along to the event to find out more.
