The GIST Transformers come from Algeria, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Morocco and Senegal and will travel to major entrepreneurship and technology innovation hubs such as Silicon Valley (November 5-7), New York (November 7-10), Boston (November 10-14) and Washington DC (November 14-17).
In November 2012, the winning entrepreneurs (GIST Transformers) from the GIST Tech-I Competition, the I Dare Business Plan Competition and the Startup Boot Camps will visit the United States for the U.S. Entrepreneurship Journey. The experience gives the GIST Transformers an inspiring experience which will allow them to learn about technology entrepreneurship on a global level through workshops, conferences and mentorship. The Transformers will also gain networking contacts and opportunities as they tour large corporations and attend receptions with American venture capital companies, angel investors, diaspora groups and potential collaborators.
The GIST Team is very excited for the U.S. Entrepreneurship Journey and is preparing for the arrival of the following GIST Transformers who will participate in this tour:
