Since 2011, innovators from around the globe have showcased their science and technology ventures to the world through the GIST Tech-I Competition. Thousands of expert reviews have taken place and the online voting public has cast over 1 million votes in support of these talented young innovators from emerging economies.
The Global Innovation through Science and Technology (GIST) initiative empowers young innovators through networking, skill building, mentoring, and access to financing to develop startup solutions that address economic and development challenges. Aspiring innovators should submit their ideas and startups online in an application consisting of an executive summary and promotional video.
Up to 30 finalists will receive a trip to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES), this year in Silicon Valley, to showcase their ventures, win prizes, and receive one-on-one mentorship and training.
Sign up for the 2016 GIST Tech-I Competition here before January 15, 2016.
