In its sixth year, the coming rendition of ZGI has a lot of perks in store for promising startups. For example, you stand a chance to bag $50,000 in cash investment from the Brilliant Start investment fund by Brilliant Lab in exchange for no less than a 5% stake in your company.

Wait, there’s more. As part of the virtual program, participating startup founders will also gain access to training sessions provided by leading technology enterprise experts from IE, MIT, and Stanford Business Schools.

Zain will also throw in a special networking session where more than 100 graduates from previous ZGI batches will come under the same roof and share their knowledge and experience in the tech sector.
