On TeleGeography Explains the Internet, I typically interview guests who work in the telecom industry or manage telecoms at large enterprises.
Not this week!
Meet Aaron Chan, Founder and Managing Partner at Recurve Capital. As an investor in the “technology media and telecom” space—or “TMT” as they say in finance circles—Aaron has something of an outside perspective.
In this episode, we discuss how investors view the telecom industry and how Aaron classifies publicly traded telecom companies.
My colleagues and I pay close attention to the economic geography of networks, so it was fascinating to hear Aaron's view of the long-term profitability of network operators and what he looks for in making investment decisions in the telecom space.
We also talked about the future of the industry, what might lead to competitive advantage for some companies, and how long that might last.
I hope you learn as much from Aaron's perspective as I did.
