This year the World Communication Awards has launched a new category for Startup of the Year. This is free to enter and will be won by a participant in the Startup Village at the co-located Total Telecom Congress – this is free as well!


Once you have signed up for the Startup Village you will be invited to supply a video pitch to enter the awards. Ten outstanding startups will then be invited to pitch live at Total Telecom Congress in-front of an audience of potential investors, partners and customers. The best pitch will win Startup of the Year to be announced at the gala dinner on the 1 November.
