The Technovation Challenge is a worldwide, technology entrepreneurship competition in which each teams of five middle- or high-school girls (10-18 years old) identify problems in their local communities, build prototype mobile apps for them, develop business plans, and pitch the plans to potential investors. Teams will meet for 3-4 hours weekly with mentors from the tech/business community, January-April, in preparation for regional and worldwide events in May and June.
