We are proud to be one of Technovation’s Regional Ambassadors, which comprises a global cohort of over 110 organizers from around the world.
Technovation Girls equips young women ages 10- 18 with the skills to become tech entrepreneurs and leaders. With the support of volunteer mentors, girls work in teams to code mobile apps that address real-world problems they’ve identified.
The curriculum also challenges girls to build a business plan that can bring their app to market. Close to 20,000 girls register from across 115 countries annually.
Teen-Turn sessions take girls through a lesson plan towards the creation of a social enterprise that gives back to their community via their app.
Submission deadline is April 20, 2020.
The finale for all Technovation participants in Ireland will see the girls pitch their business and the app to a panel of judges. This Regional Pitch Event will take place from 10:30am to 4:30pm on Saturday May 9th, 2020 at Microsoft DreamSpace in Dublin.
