CW Membership: How it works

CW is a leading and vibrant community with a rapidly expanding network of 1000 companies involved in the development and application of technologies to solve business problems, about a third of whom are members. Companies are drawn from all parts of the wireless enabled world, from silicon design and electronics, securely connected devices, networks, smart phones, software and vertical applications, through to data analytics, artificial intelligence, content delivery, telecommunications, and satellites.

CW connects these companies and stimulates collaborative innovation through a range of high-profile networking events. We also deliver a range of programmes in digital transformation, international growth, start-up support and recruitment which help our members to achieve their business goals more quickly.

Many CW activities are centered around the work of our Special Interest Groups (SIGs), each focussed on a specific technology and/or business area. SIG meetings provide opportunities for member organisations to get together, learn from each other and explore opportunities to work together.


With a solid membership base and strong links with academia and international partnerships, CW can bring competitive advantage to your company. We pride ourselves in our flexible approach to business support - just let our team know your goals and we'll work alongside you to help you grow your business.
