Technovation Challenge 2017

Technovation Challenge 2017

In 2017, Technovation has partnered up with Google's Made with Code and UN Women to offer girls the chance to build an app to change the world for the better.

Technovation offers girls around the world the opportunity to learn necessary skills to emerge as tech entrepreneurs and leaders. Every year, Technovation challenges girls to build a business plan and mobile app that will address a community problem.

The Technovation programme takes students through 4 stages of launching a mobile app startup, inspired by the principles of design thinking: Ideation, Technology, Entrepreneurship, and Pitch.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
