Emerging Digital Solutions


We are pleased to announce that we now have an online application feature for our WITSA Emerging Digital Solutions program! All candidates should go to and fill out their WEDS applications no later than July 31st. We kindly request at all current nominees also complete this online application as soon as possible.

As you will recall, the Emerging Digital Solutions program recognizes early‐stage or veteran companies, as long as the solution presented is new and largely scalable to other locations of the world. Emerging Digital Solutions searches for solutions to be displayed to interested policy makers, businesspersons and social stakeholders with the potential to boost its development and deployment, aiming to significantly impact business and society.

All selected WEDS winners will be provided the following:

  1. Four (4) Nights Lodging in Taipei
  2. One (1) Full Delegate Registration Package for WCIT 2017
  3. An opportunity to Showcase your solution at the 2017 World Congress on IT
  4. Your solution will be a candidate to receive a WITSA 2017 Global ICT Excellence Award (Award Ceremony to take place at the WCIT 2017 Gala Dinner on Tuesday, September 12, 2017)
  5. The 2017 Class of WEDS will also participate in a special selection process from the Taiwanese Organizers of WCIT 2017 for up to US$ 65,000 in supporting benefits for ramping up your solution worldwide (details in the Guidelines).
