She Loves Tech, the world’s largest startup competition for women and technology, has opened applications for its seventh edition, which is offering prizes of up to US$50,000.
She Loves Tech is an international non-profit organization dedicated to bridging the financial gap for female entrepreneurs and creating a female-friendly ecosystem for technology, entrepreneurship, and innovation.
It organizes the world’s largest startup competition for women and technology, with the goal of identifying and advancing the most promising entrepreneurs and technologies for transformative impact. This year’s edition will take place in over 40 countries.
Fundraising will be front and centre of the event, with participating startups offered one-on-one time with leading VCs, mentoring hours, and direct cash and investment prizes throughout the series.
Local pitch rounds will be hosted in different countries and regions with the winner of each round moving into the next phase of the Competition.
A week-long boot camp especially curated for the winners of each local round will take place at the end of October. The boot camp is based on experiential learning, mentorship and peer coaching. It covers market, innovation and fundraising topics.
The culminating final round of the competition will be held during the She Loves Tech Global Conference, and will also serve as an investor demo day, allowing startups to pitch to investors directly for funding. Startups have the opportunity to win up to US$50,000 investment and cash prizes.
“She Loves Tech 2021 is more than a competition, it’s an acceleration platform designed to take women-led and women impact startups to the next level,” said co-founder Leanne Robers.
Applications are open here until July 31.
