    as date is passed can we still apply ?

    and will they(MIC) sponsor our trip or we will just get an ticket ?

    Same goes for Build2016 conference. do we just get the ticket or get whole trip sponsored (or can get sponsor by outreaching to different companies)

    The link appears to be broken. :/

  3. @HeyAk, this link is broken because the applications are closed now. Visit this website http://www.ges2016.org ,  it says "Entrepreneur applications have now closed. Investor applications for GES will open on February 22."

    Once date is passed, you can't apply as the rules are put in place by the regulating body.

    As far as //Build is concerned, you don't have the entire trip sponsored, however off-course if an organization/software house sponsors your trip, nothing better than that. 🙂

    Thanks for stepping in 🙂
