We’re looking for a dozen competitors for the 2016 Early Stage Challenge — where hot young startups using GPUs vie for a $100,000 prize, awarded on the spot. Here’s how it works: CEOs get four minutes to pitch their company to our expert panel, and another four minutes to answer questions. After all have presented, the panel and audience choose a winner, who gets handed the check. It’ll all take place in a furious two hours at our annual GPU Technology Conference, on April 6, 2016, in Silicon Valley. Last year, GTC drew some 4,000 attendees from 40-plus countries.
