Abstract

The Technovation Challenge is an international app building competition for girls aged 10-18 designed to increase the number of female tech entrepreneurs. The program has experienced great success since its introduction to Armenia in 2017. Our project identified opportunities to motivate and support the girls to continue developing their personal, professional, and technical skills post-competition. We distributed a survey to past participants and conducted interviews with key stakeholders to identify opportunities and best practices. From this information, we provided eight implementation plans to the Regional Ambassador to provide guidance on organizational growth and program improvement. Together, these recommendations create an ecosystem for the program to flourish in Armenia.
