Indigo Telecom Australia

by Cynthia A. Montgomery and Keith Chi-ho Wong

Abstract

Two entrepreneurs identify an opportunity to bring ubiquitous satellite phone service to the outback of Australia. This case challenges students to carefully identify and evaluate the added-value the firm is bringing to the market, its priorities in implementation, and two quite different visions about who the firm should serve, and the range of products and services it should offer, in the short to intermediate term.
