Selected amongst over 300 applications, 20 preselected candidates got the opportunity to pitch in front of the SEIF Awards Jury this week. Pitch by pitch, we continued to be impressed and the jury had a very difficult decision to make. Comparing cases with different tech approaches, across various sectors and from different stages of development is not an easy task. Even with highly experienced jury members from various backgrounds and fields.
Today, after careful considerations and discussions, we have the great pleasure to announce the 10 finalists of the SEIF Awards 2019 Tech for Impact.
