Supported by big names in the tech industry like Twitter, Google, MIT Media Lab and Andreessen Horowitz, Technovation is calling for young women in the entrepreneurial tech scene to join its three-month tech programme.

The initiative is currently active in 28 countries around the globe and focuses on helping young women — between the ages of 10 and 18 — to work together. The teams are then encouraged to design and develop their mobile app and pitch in front of a group of judges.
So far, Technovation has seen over 3 000 women build their own mobile applications.
To apply, you and your team should register here, after which you’ll submit your app, a pitch, a demo and a business plan, among other things. You can also sign up as a mentor or a couch.
Last year’s programme saw more than 600 girls from Rondebosch High School in South Africa to Mombasa, Kenya. See what the 2013 alumni had to say about the competition:
Participating teams stand a chance of winning their share of US$20 000 as well as a trip to San Francisco where they’ll pitch in front of a world stage.
The 2015 Registration Deadline is 15 February, so get building!
