Every year, Technovation challenges girls all over the world to build a mobile app that will address a community problem. Since 2010, over 3,000 girls from 28 countries have submitted to Technovation, thanks to dedicated volunteers around the world. Technovation’s success in changing girls’ attitudes about technology and entrepreneurship relies on local volunteers.
Volunteer Coaches recruit teams of girls to work with female mentors. Together, they come up with an app idea, conduct user research, create a business plan, and build the app prototype. Leaders from the technology and business sectors judge the submissions and provide feedback to the teams.
Girls do not need to have programming experience to participate, and Technovation is free for any girl who wants to participate.
