piyus

Piyus Kanti
CEO, Cloudstrats Inc. (USA)

For Cloudstrats GFS2019 was simply "Awesome". Opportunity to meet several key investors from the MENA region and across the world fuelled our desire to be back this year. We were blessed to find some enthusiastic marquee names to back us with investment, guidance and support.

Narsun

Umer Abbas, CEO

"Narsun would like to show gratitude to GITEX for their exceptional support in providing an immense opportunity to cabinet our services in front of prominent capitalists. More than 500 people visited our stall and amongst them almost 8 potential investors were gained. We successfully signed a project with MOU and earned many mature leads who resulted into a few more sales. Good luck for the event, we are ecstatic to be a part of it yet again."
