Please give us your elevator pitch:

Goodtel is Australia’s ethical telco, giving 50% of its profits back to good causes that help protect the planet and those in need.


What problem is your business solving?

Goodtel is an easy way to give back through your telco. Everyone uses telco everyday, so instead of shareholders getting all the profits Goodtel chooses to share 50% of its profits with 10 charity partners.

  • Australia’s only social enterprise telco that give 50% of our profits back to charity partners
  • Goodtel use parts of Telstra’s 3G and 4G mobile network to cover 98.8% of Australia’s population (that’s over 25 million people!).
  • Enjoy no lock in contracts (ever!) Plus, we’re so confident you’ll love the service that you’re guaranteed for a full refund with our 14-day risk free trial if you change your mind. 

What can attendees expect to see from you at TCS?

  • Exclusive conscious space discount codes for money off mobile and nbn plans
  • ‘Charity pong’ – come and play a game, if you make the shot we make a donation to our charity partner
  • Speak to us to find out how we’re giving people across Australia the chance to give back with their telco 

Can you tell us a little about your background and where the inspiration came from for your business?


Goodtel Founder, Damien Gould


“Like most people I’ve always tried to do good – whether its trying to be a good parent or good businessperson. In 2003 I co-founded a business that helped anyone with a phone, a computer and the internet to launch their own telco. My insights and knowledge were helping people with good ideas to start their own businesses and live their dreams. I often thought Australia needs a telco that would do good for the planet and those in need but somehow time got away.


In late 2018 I had the opportunity to start something new. I knew I wanted to “do some good”. That good is now Goodtel. It’s called Goodtel, because, that’s what it is. It’s the first telco that commits 50% of its profits to help people and the planet. When you choose Goodtel you combine your telco needs with your desire to do good in the world. I hope we can do good together from now on.”
