The 2018 GIST Tech-I Alumni Mentors
This year, GIST Tech-I is changing the competition format in order to allow past Tech-I finalists to take a more active role as alumni mentors during the competition.
Throughout the course of the competition, the past finalists will function as Alumni Mentors who work with competitors to improve their ideas and perfect their pitch. New 2018 applicants were able to choose which Alumni Mentor they wanted to work with when they applied to the competition. Alumni Mentors then selected the best applications from the 2018 applicant pool to move on to the semifinals. Those semifinalists will then compete in a global public vote. The top 10 semifinalists with the most public votes, along with their Alumni Mentors will advance to the Tech-I finals during the 2018 Global Entrepreneurship Congress in Istanbul, Turkey. At the finals, competing entrepreneurs will pitch their startups to a global audience with the chance to win prizes and seed capital.
