August 13th and 14th 2020
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we will be holding the World Summit online as a virtual event.
This is an incredibly difficult and uncertain time, and we’re all facing challenges we didn’t expect. But even in the middle of all that uncertainty, we can find joy and comfort and make space to recognize our resilience and adaptability. That’s why we’re holding a virtual World Summit. Now, more than ever, we want to host a celebration of our community that includes as many people as possible.
We hope you’ll join us on August 13th and 14th for our online World Summit – everyone in the Technovation community is invited. We’ve answered some big questions in this post, and we’ll have more information in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
Who can attend?
Anyone in the Technovation community with internet access can join us. We are still working out the details but we will keep you posted – check this page for more details in the coming weeks.
Will Finalists still pitch their ideas?
Yes! Technovation Girls and Families Finalist Teams will still have the opportunity to pitch their ideas – and now, they’ll be pitching to the entire Technovation community instead of a small selection! We are still deciding what those pitches will look like and how they will be held, but finalist teams will be able to share their great ideas publicly.
How are the prizes changing for the online World Summit?
Instead of investing in World Summit travel sponsorships for each finalist team and educational scholarships for two Grand Prize winning teams, we will award prizes to support the learning of as many of our stakeholders as possible. Technovation will retain the same number of finalist teams, but prizes will look a bit different this year. Read our blog post and visit our awards structure page to learn more.
What does a virtual World Summit look like?
It will be a two-day event held online! On August 13th and 14th we will be conducting workshops, panel discussions and the championship event.
You’ll also be able to ask our tech industry experts your questions as a virtual participant. Keep an eye on our social media channels because we’ll be posting hints about our guests and asking for your input!
