Technovation offers girls, age 10 – 18, the opportunity to learn the skills they need to emerge as tech entrepreneurs and leaders. Every year we invite girls to identify a problem in their community, and then challenge them to solve it. 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.
Technovation takes students through four stages of launching a mobile app startup, inspired by the principles of design thinking:
- Ideation—identify a problem in the community.
- Technology—develop a mobile app solution.
- Entrepreneurship—build a business plan to launch the app.
- Pitch—take the business to market.
