Cloud Networking Summit

Cloud communications is still an example of an emerging technology market. Few geographies have a mature, established cloud communications landscape with high rates of cloud user penetration. It is this continued emergence which makes the cloud communications sector particularly interesting for investors and those looking to accelerate growth through merger and acquisition. The market and technologies utilised create an abundance of opportunities for those with the means to obtain, drive, and develop businesses with innovative technology platforms.

It is this premise that created so much interest in Cavell Group’s first virtual event, Cloud Comms Summit Invest 2020. Hosted in conjunction with Q Advisors – one of the world’s leading investment banking firms, specialising in the telecoms, media and technology sectors – CCS Invest bought together representatives from various industry stakeholders: investors, innovators, and strategists to examine a selection of topics covering various opportunities that the cloud communications market provides.
