How can a business identify innovations in the telco sector and respond appropriately to startup threats and opportunities?

Most telecommunication companies have struggled to monetize the immense amount of data flowing through their networks. As their traditional messaging and voice services become more and more commoditized by over-the-top (OTT) players, telcos need to urgently commence modernizing operations and redefining their business strategy to stay relevant for the medium to long term.

However, many telcos do not have the capabilities required to enter new markets or create the required product or service offerings. In contrast, there are many agile and innovative startups within the telco space that can enable market share repositioning and new value propositions for telcos through partnerships or M&A deals.

But where can telcos or other businesses access detailed informaion of disruptive telco startups without expending excessive resources on research? Who can conduct the scouting, assessment, rating, and the prioritization of these startups?
