Telecom Tycoon Terry


Serial entrepreneur Terry Matthews was interviewed by SKY news in the UK. Matthews, Welsh by birth and Canadian by choice has some interesting advice in the short clip. He is one of our telecom giants with his creation of a string (more than 200 by his claim) of companies. He was the founder behind such telecom greats such as Mitel and Crosskeys among others.

He is still the moving force behind numerous Canadian companies, a member of the Canadian Telecom Hall of Fame and an outspoken supporter of small startups. His energy and enthusiasm for the entrepreneurial process is refreshing.

    Hi Shulist,
    Thank you for the reference to Canada’s Telecommunications Hall of Fame in your Terry Matthews article. Indeed he is a Telecom Laureate. Which begs the question - will you be joining us November 4th for the Telecom Laureate Awards gala in the National Capital Region? There are some other Ontarians on our list - including Nexicom Group and Ciel Satellite who you might want to note…

    Cheers,
