You are a tech entrepreneur who is looking for a breakthrough into the international market but don’t know how to start. You want that opportunity to pitch your idea for people to buy into it but you don’t know where to go. That is why the U.S. Department of State introduced the GIST Technology Idea (GIST Tech-I) Competition

The competition is an annual competition for science and technology (S&T) entrepreneurs from 136 emerging economies around the world (which includes Ghana). It is part of the Global Innovation through Science and Technology (GIST) initiative, led by the U.S. Department of State.

The GIST Tech-I Competition is implemented by the American Association for the Advancement of
Science (AAAS). This year, it will challenge former GIST Tech-I finalists (GIST Tech-I Alumni) to lead and mentor the next generation of tech entrepreneurs in their countries and regions. A select group of GIST Tech-I Alumni, called Alumni Mentors, will solicit and help select science and technology entrepreneurs with either an idea or startup in their region to join them at the 2018 Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) in Istanbul, Turkey to pitch their idea or startup.

Since 2011, innovators from around the globe have showcased their science and technology ventures to the world through GIST Tech-I Competitions. Thousands of expert reviews have taken place and the online voting public has cast over 1 million votes in support of these talented young innovators.
