Technovation & TechnovationMA

Technovation, a flagship program of non-profit Iridescent, is the world’s largest global tech entrepreneurship competition for girls. The program offers girls around the world the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to emerge as tech entrepreneurs and leaders. Every year, Technovation challenges 10 to 18 year old girls to build a business plan and mobile app that will address a community problem. Since 2009, over 15,000 girls have participated from over 100 countries.

TechnovationMA—the regional round of the Technovation Challenge—serves all girls aged 10-18 across Massachusetts and RI and is run by the MassTLC Ed Foundation. The Ed Foundation recruits members of the tech community to support teams by serving as mentors, coaches, and judges and has developed workshops including: mentor training, beginner and advanced MIT App Inventor courses, understanding UX/UI, creating business plans, and pitching.
