Participate in Pitch Contest to Gain Media Attention and International Connections

The InnoVEX Pitch Contest is open to exhibitors to register free of charge. The organizer invites international investors to be judges, and gathers resources from the government and enterprises as contest rewards. The final round is held publicly on the stage during the exhibition and broadcast live simultaneously, which is the event with the highest exposure for startups. In 2023, 11 startups from home and abroad were selected to win prizes worth more than USD $120,000. The Canadian startup Blumind Inc. won the grand prize with their product "Ultra-low power AI Analog Compute".
