Top 30 from GIST Tech-I "Go-to-Market" Competition Announced!

November 14, 2012

The GIST Initiative is pleased to announce that the top 30 ventures of the GIST Tech-I “Go-To-Market” Competition 2012 have been selected through an online video voting process in which thousands of people around the world participated by voting through our online platform from November 1-12 for the venture with the best idea. In the first stage of the competition participants were graded on the merit of their Go-To-Market Plan by entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and other experts in the field. During this second stage entrants proved their ability to appeal to a wide, non-specialized audience through their videos with a succinct message and explanation of their product or service.

We congratulate these top 30 entrants, who have won a trip to Dubai in December to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Summit and to receive special training and mentorship sessions arranged by GIST. The culmination of the Summit will be a final pitching competition where the 10 top pitches will win prizes like long-term mentorships and seed grants, with five of them earning participation in a six-week accelerator course in Silicon Valley.
