Women in Tech

We all, women and men, use technology that is mainly developed by men. Globally, women account for 52 % of non-tech jobs but only 20 % of tech jobs.
Owning Partner



We need all, women and men to develop future innovations to save the world but at the moment it is left on the shoulders of men.


We are looking for an idea, concept, solution, project that increases girls' and women's interest in the field of science and technology and make women choose those as a career. The more versatile the working groups are the better. Please take a look at the challenge video.


We expect the proposal to include short description of the idea, the possible execution and how does the success look like e.g. what are the ways of measuring the successful project. It does not harm us if you have a test version of the solution ready when the challenge is over.

After the challenge

We will set up a group of young people to evaluate the proposals and the most inspiring team will get a chance for job shadowing of a woman leader in IT sector.
