As the Technovation Turkey team, we've been attending the Technovation Girls Challenge and inspiring young girls to be a pioneer in the STEM and Entrepreneurship fields since 2013. More than 15 teams have participated ever since, and most of our alumni have worked in/studied on STEM fields after their Technovation journey. As a large team, in the 2021 season, we consist of 2 Chapter Ambassadors and 3 Student Ambassadors. We are planning on organizing a Launch Event for the 2021 season, and the registrations are about to open! Stay tuned!
In February 2020, the first Launch Event Turkey was initiated at Hisar School.
Launch Event is the participants' first official exposure to Technovation's ideation step. By the Design Thinking workshops hosted by the Student Ambassadors, the participants are challenged to develop the prototype of their application. What's more, students are able to give a short pitch presentation of their application and receive feedback from experienced mentors.
In the past two years, we hosted women entrepreneurs and software engineers from the tech-startups Getir and Insider, in which we receive positive feedback from the participants due to their fueling motivation.
Learn more about the details of previous Launchs and stay tuned for Launch'22!
In August 2018, Dafne, Debi, Irmak, and Nil were awarded to be finalist participants for their application, "Tap Tap Trees". Tap Tap Trees is an application that enchances awareness for deforestation. The application encouraged kids to play a mobile game and help plant trees via the organization ÇEKÜL. As a result of their efforts, they were awarded by a trip to Silicon Valley for the Technovation World Pitch experience.
