Telecom Council Service Provider Forum

October Forum

28 October 2011
9:00am - 1:00pm
PARC, Palo Alto, California



The SPIF supports the dozens of fixed and wireless carriers who have offices and/or regular attendance in the Silicon Valley to pursue investment, technology, and partnership opportunities. SPIF member carriers have telecom operations across the globe, At each monthly meeting, we review 5 or 6 interesting young companies who are seeking funding, strategic investment and/or have a product or service that would be useful to the carriers in attendance.

Startups invited to present are filtered by SPIF members and the SPIF steering committee and flagged as young companies with the ideas, relevance, and technology that most appeal to communication service providers from around the globe. All companies who present to the SPIF are evaluated by SPIF members for The SPIFFY Awards, an annual ceremony held each February that recognizes the best telecom startups from the year prior.

The SPIF Steering Committee encourages carriers of any size or service who are actively engaging companies with new technologies, services, and ideas to join this Forum. Carriers who are interested in joining and companies interested in presenting can get more information here.

Hosted by PARC, a Xerox company.
