GIST Tech-I Competition

An initiative that spans 54 countries across the Middle East, Asia and Africa, GIST builds entrepreneurial ecosystems by identifying, coaching and funding the most promising technology entrepreneurs through its flagship competition. The application process includes submitting an Executive Summary and a two-minute promotional video. After a grueling route involving expert judges and public voting, this year’s semifinalists will pitch live in Malaysia. The winners receive grants ranging from $2,000 to $15,000.
