The mission of the Technovation Challenge is to promote women in technology by giving girls the skills and confidence they need to be successful in computer science and entrepreneurship.
In the course, students design a mobile phone app prototype, write a business plan, and "pitch" their plan to a panel of venture capitalists at a high-visibility, "Pitch Night" event. Winners of each regional Pitch Night will come to the San Francisco Bay Area for a "National Pitch Night."
This is our first year in Los Angeles, and we're raising money to create a great Pitch Night program and provide prizes to our regional competition winners! Any remaining funds we will channel into making next year's program even better!
The LA Pitch Night is free to attend, so please support our girls with a small donation, and join us for LA Pitch Night 2011!
