The Technovation Challenge is a non-profit, global technology entrepreneurship programme for young women aged 10 to 23. Through an intensive 3-month curriculum, teams of woman work together to imagine, design and develop mobile apps and then pitch their “start-up” business to investors. The theme for the challenge is usually to develop an app that helps solve a real problem in our community.
Anar Simpson, the Global Technovation Ambassador from Silicon Valley will be in Cape Town on the 8th of October. Silicon Cape is proud to host an information session in order to raise awareness for the Technovation Challenge which kicks off early next year.
