KPMG is looking for Saudi Arabia’s top tech innovators who are poised and prepared to become tech titans with the launch of Saudi edition of the “KPMG Private Enterprise Tech Innovator Competition”, with the tagline – Tech Innovators of Today; Titans of Tomorrow.
Following the success of KPMG’s “Best British Tech Pioneer”, which has crowned innovators such as Echo Health and What3Words, the competition has been expanded to include technology innovators in Saudi Arabia and 15 other countries across the major regions of the world. Wherever they are in the business lifecycle – from a startup to the accelerated growth – they are being invited to pitch their innovations and present their growth ambitions to panels of local and global industry experts, and to be recognized as the most innovative and potentially leading tech innovator.
Participants will have an opportunity to be recognized as one of Saudi Arabia’s most successful technology innovators. Shortlisted businesses will be provided with exclusive networking opportunities among industry experts and other tech innovators, and winning companies will gain exposure by being featured in KPMG’s “Winners Report” and media profiles. The Tech Innovators in Saudi Arabia, and the winner in each of the other participating countries, will progress to the Global Tech Innovator final at Web Summit 2021 in Lisbon in November, where they will be recognized on the global stage.
