Girls are ready to change the world. Technovation makes sure they have the tools they need

Over the last 15 years, we’ve trained 150,000 young women to be technology entrepreneurs & innovators, empowering them to solve problems in their communities using technology.

5+ years after participating in Technovation programs, alumnae still credit the program with influencing their interests, career, and professional pursuits.

Sustainable Development Goals

Girls solve global problems

As it turns out, the problems that matter most to girls are the same ones that matter to world leaders. We ask girls to consider how the problems they choose to solve align to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals—and every year we're blown away by their ingenuity.
