Gigaom will be holding our first annual competition for the AI start-up that delivers the highest ROI to corporate customers. The GAIN competition coincides with the annual conference Gigaom AI held in San Francisco, CA, February 15-16th 2017.

AI startups are leading the way for bringing positive impacts of AI to many of the world’s long-term challenges. “Record number of investments are being made in early stage AI start-ups. The competition will identify which new ventures can deliver the highest ROI to businesses today,” explained David Hehman, Gigaom’s Start-up & VC editor.

The competition is open to any AI start-up impacting corporate business functions, from sales and marketing to finance and HR. “The AI products and services being developed by start-ups today will change business forever. We invite all start-ups that can help enterprises increase ROI using AI to enter the competition,” said Byron Reese, Publisher of Gigaom.

All entries will be reviewed by a panel of VC judges in February. Three to five startups will be selected in February to present their products at the Gigaom AI conference. The winner will receive recognition as the Gigaom Leading AI Startup 2017, as well as an investment offer from the VC panel.
