10 Nigerian Startups Among Semifinalists For The GIST Tech-I Competition


Ten Nigerian startups have been named among the semifinalist for The GIST Tech-I Competition 2018. The Global Innovation through Science and Technology (GIST) initiative empowers young innovators through networking, skills building, mentoring, and access to financing to develop startup solutions that address economic and development challenges. It is the brainchild of the U. S. Department of States.

According to the website, GIST Tech-I, the semifinalists are from 46 emerging economies. The semifinalists were chosen by the Tech-I Alumni Mentors, who reviewed hundreds of applications to pick their top applicants.

Interestingly, the selection process for this year has changed as the public can now vote for the best science and tech startup. Previously, entrepreneurs and innovators submitted their ideas and startups on the portal and reviewed by past finalists from the same competition. But this is no longer the case.
