The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) is offering full sponsorships for startups to attend the 40th edition of GITEX Technology Week holding at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) Dubai, the United Arab Emirates from 3-10 December 2020.

The NITDA, through its subsidiary Office for ICT Innovation and Entrepreneurship (OIIE), is calling on interested startups to apply for an opportunity to be fully sponsored to GITEX 2020.

All successful startups will be sponsored to attend the GITEX Future Stars (GFS), 6-9 December holding as part of GITEX Technology Week.
