As you know, ITU Digital World 2020 has been postponed to Q4 2021 as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The crisis has revealed just how much we depend on digital technology in every area of our personal and professional lives.

So now more than ever, we need creative SMEs with innovative tech solutions –  and tech SMEs, startups and entrepreneurs need support and encouragement from the industry.

The ITU Digital World SME Virtual Awards are an opportunity to recognize excellent innovative tech solutions, build resilience and foster investment in tech SMEs in the midst of this crisis.
