AIBC

ABOUT EMERGING TECH

Following a very successful run at the spring edition of AIBC Summit Malta, we’re going all out for 2021. Over 100 startups will be selected to showcase their products and initiatives throughout the event.

Startups based in AI, Blockchain, Quantum Tech, Big Data, and IoT will each have a small booth at AIBC Summit Malta surrounded by top investors and mentors, being invited to lavish networking dinners as well as benefitting from online exposure.

However, the Startup pitch is only open to startups and the judges’ top ten will make it to the pitch stage during the final leg of the Summit. Expect the competition to be fierce with so many investors to impress!

For the first time ever, SiGMA have created our own investment funds. Participants taking part in our startup pitch during Malta Week can benefit from this investment that ranges between €25,000 to 500,000

Increase your chance of being one of the top 100 by providing a 3-minute video-introduction upon participation!
