Innovation IntrodUKtions is a virtual trade mission introducing 20 UK companies to the telecom innovation ecosystem brought to us by UK’s Department for International Trade.

This 2-day virtual trade mission introduces innovative young companies who are solving technology and business challenges across the communications and IoT ecosystems, including:

  • 5G
  • Future Mobility
  • AR/VR/XR Immersive
  • Open RAN
  • AI

The programme includes experts, startup pitches, online demos, and followup meetings. Starting with an online agenda, split over 2 mornings, including DIT’s Chief Scientific Adviser and former GSMA chair, Dr Mike Short CBE, and thought leaders from UK5G, the Digital Catapult, West Midlands 5G and UK Gov’s 5G testbed programme, sharing the startup scene emerging from the UK.

Over the 2 days Rapid-Fire pitches will highlight 20 new companies and technologies. After these introductions, select participants will be able to browse demos and product information in Telecom Council’s portal and where there is synergy, schedule private, 1-on-1, followup meetings with the startups during a full day of MatchMaking on July 17th.

Taking introductions to the next step, Telecom Council's MatchMaker Meeting Service builds a bridge between a Rapid Fire pitch and a full-length business discussion. Telecom Council members and participating innovation scouts are ready to engage, committed to using the service to schedule followup meetings.
