Press Release - Who said technology, science and business were only for men? Or even more so, to adults? Technovation Montreal is on a daily mission to break down these prejudices.
This competition for young girls stimulates entrepreneurship, teamwork and technological skills in girls.
Aged between 13 and 18 for the Junior and Senior teams, the girls will be accompanied by their mentors to present their business projects, their mobile applications or their artificial intelligence projects. Initiatives that are as original as they are useful in their community.
