Technovation: Helping Girls to Build IT Business

Written by

Technovation offers girls around the world the opportunity to learn the skills they need to emerge as tech entrepreneurs and leaders. Every year girls are invited to identify a problem in their community, and then challenged to solve it. Register by January 2018 to complete all the challenges by the deadline on April 23, 2019.

Girls work in teams to build both a mobile app and a business plan to launch that app, supported by mentors and guided by our curriculum.

You and your team will build a mobile technology company. Twelve teams will be invited to the World Pitch Summit for the chance to pitch their company to a global audience and receive recognition for their efforts. No prior coding or app experience is necessary.

Main criteria

  • To be eligible to participate in Technovation as a student, you must be between the ages of 10 to 18 as of August 1, 2019 and identify as female;
  • To be fully registered, you must form or join a team. Teams can range in size from 1-5 girls. No more than 5 girls are allowed to join a team;
  • Your team's division – Junior or Senior – depends on the age of all team members.

Junior Division: Team members are between 10-14 years old as of August 1, 2019

Senior Division: Team members are between 15-18 years old as of August 1, 2019
