Technovation offers girls around the world 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 develop a mobile app and a business plan, supported by mentors and guided by our curriculum.
Every season ends in the World Pitch Summit, where top teams from around the world are flown to San Francisco for a week of learning, networking, field trips, and community building.

Technovation’s curriculum takes students through 4 stages of launching a mobile app startup, inspired by the principles of design thinking:
Technovation has reached 10,000 girls in 78 countries, and they’re getting noticed.
These young women have been recognized by President Obama at the 2016 White House Science Fair, Prime Minister Modi, the First Lady of Nigeria and the UN’s ITU Secretary General to name a few. Technovation has also been featured in the award-winning documentary Codegirl made by Lesley Chilcott.
Lead the Change with Technovation
Through Technovation, students develop a mobile app, build a business plan, and learn to pitch their product to investors. Mentors learn how to support young women, clearly and simply communicate technical and entrepreneurship ideas, and how to lead a team of innovators through every stage of the design process.
