How long will I have to pitch for?

How will the winners and finalists be chosen?

The finalists are chosen by the judges of your category and this is the same for the winners. Their decision is final. 

Will I be able to use my pitch deck?

Can I pitch if I am not exhibiting at GITEX Futurists?

No, only exhibitors can participate. The cost for a pod is just $1,650. If you want to book, you can get your pod here.

Will I get to meet and network with the judges before hand?

What happens if i win?

Firstly - congrats. Secondly, you'll be swept up into a photo opportunity with our media. You'll have your picture taken with the judges on stage, mentioned in all marketing and be asked for a quote so we can tell the world how fantastic you feel.

Like the Oscars, there won't be too much time for long acceptance speeches. So keep that in mind. 

The money. What do I leave with?

Whilst a giant cheque is great for the pictures, this isn't overly practical in your actual bank. We'll swap this instead for a cheque you can actually take to the bank. The prize money is awarded in USD and we can not accept any costs incurred for currency fluctations.
