Application Deadline: February 19, 2021.
The call for applications is now open for women-led, startups across Africa, Europe, and North America who are focused on Emerging Tech and solving systemic problems facing our world.
Your startup must be based within Africa, Europe, or North America.
Your startup must fit within one of the following verticals: Agriculture or Food Tech, AI, AR, Blockchain, Cybersecurity, EdTech, Energy or Environmental Tech, FinTech, Future of Work, Hardware, HealthTech, IoT, Machine Learning, Robotics, SaaS, Space Tech, or Mobility or Transportation Tech, VR.
Your product must be in beta or already launched to the public. The only exception to this rule is for Ag Tech/Food Tech, Robotics, and Mobility/Transportation startups who must either be in prototype phase, in beta, or already launched to the public. You may not apply if you are only in the concept stage.
Note: A prototype is an initial model built to test your product; it is not just a design or a wireframe.
You cannot have raised more than $5M USD from combined sources.
Your startup must incorporate technology into the approach of your product, which allows the company to rapidly and massively scale in a manner that traditional, independent small businesses cannot. Please note that using tech (i.e. hosting a blog, selling products on your website, or using social media in your marketing) does not qualify as using tech to scale on a mass level nationally and globally.
Please block off the following dates in the event that you are chosen as a finalist. Attendance to each of these is required. Please let us know if there is a conflict as soon as you are selected as a finalist.
