About Technovation
Every year, Technovation invites teams of girls from all over the world to learn and apply the skills needed to solve real-world problems through technology.

Girls ages 10 to 18 learn to identify a problem in their community and create a mobile app solution to address that problem, and then learn how to communicate these ideas and translate them into a fully launched business.
