Technovation is the world's largest global tech entrepreneurship competition for girls.
Girls learn to:
- identify a problem in their community.
- create an app to address the problem.
- pitch their ideas.
- develop a business plan.
Roles in Technovation Girls
Girls between the ages of 10 and 18 form teams to compete in the Technovation Challenge.
Mentors guide the girls through the development of their apps and their businesses.
Judges assess submissions from teams and offer feedback.
Teachers help form teams and can interact with the girls during school hours, but do not need to attend any sessions organized by Technovation Girls Toronto.
Regional Ambassadors build the Technovation communities in their area by recruiting participants and organizing events. The ambassador for Technovation Girls Toronto is Dr. Emily Agard from SciXchange at Ryerson University.
Sponsors help support the program and enhance the experience for the girls.
