Every girl can be a technology entrepreneur with the right resources.
As more and more people use smartphones all over the world, it’s important for young people to harness the power of technology, and see themselves as creators and future influencers of this technology — not only users of it. Technovation prompts girls to be these creators by asking them to build a mobile app that addresses a community issue.
