BitMasters pitched ‘Amplus’, an intelligent digital signage solution under the “Innovation” category, which they believe could revolutionise the global advertising industry.

The three teams that win first place in these three categories will move on to the championship round where one team will be crowd as the Imagine Cup Champion, which is scheduled to take place this Friday (29th July).
The winning team will also be awarded with the opportunity to have a one-to-one mentoring session with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.
