All mentors , teachers and students who wish to participate in the program are cordially invited to an information and brainstorming session to guide participants on tips for creating successful ideation session and details about the technovation programme.

Background:

Technovation offers girls around the world the opportunity to learn the skills they need to emerge as tech entrepreneurs and leaders. Every year they 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.
