(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – Announcing the GIST Tech-I 2018 winners, after an exciting few days of preparation and training during the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) which was held in Istanbul, Turkey.
The 10 finalists pitched their startups before a panel of judges who are experts in their field.
The finalists for this year’s GIST Tech-I competition were chosen based on a combined score that took into account their performance during the public vote portion of the competition with over 200,000 votes cast, the quality of their 90 second pitch video, and feedback from former Tech-I competitors.
Startup Huddle St. Lucia would like to also congratulate Mr. Shani Bennett of Jamaica with his startup ResearchAid Plus. Shani was able to make it to the Semi-finalist stage of the competition. A full list of the 2018 Tech-I finalists, including name, country, and startup description can be found online at www.gistnetwork.org.
The GIST Tech-I Competition is held annually for science and technology entrepreneurs from emerging economies around the world. Since 2011, Tech-I has helped hundreds of young entrepreneurs showcase their startups, provided founders with thousands of expert reviews, and collected over one million public votes in support of entrepreneurship.
Startup Huddle St. Lucia would especially like to encourage St. Lucian Entrepreneurs to participate in next year’s 2019 competition. One of the ways that one can be prepared for the GIST Tech-I competition, is by participating in the live free webinar training sessions provided by GIST Tech-I.
