About Technovation

Technovation is the world’s largest technology entrepreneurship program for girls.

Our mission is to empower girls, especially those from underrepresented communities, to develop problem-solving skills, self-efficacy, and financial capacity. These skills are crucial for  them to become leaders and changemakers in their communities. Through Technovation, girls work in teams supported by mentors to develop mobile & AI based solutions to problems in their communities. Over the past 17 years, we have engaged 350,000 participants across 120+ countries. We are able to accomplish this impact thanks to our global community of volunteer ambassadors who contribute their time and effort to lead Technovation Girls in their communities.

We recently created an ambitious strategic plan to make a significant dent in increasing the number of women in positions of influence, power, and leadership – especially in STEM. Our goal is to empower and engage 25 million girls around the world over the coming years. Are you interested in helping us reach these young women?
