Female tech leaders of tomorrow have an important task to finish today

The Women TechEU challenge is out to support the next wave of ‘deep-tech start-ups led by women’.

“This year, up to 130 deep-tech start-ups led by women will qualify for funding and business acceleration services to grow into tomorrow’s female tech leaders,” the challenge website states.

Launched by the European Commissioner this summer Women TechEU is set up to support women-led startups in the early days of their journey.

“In addition to a €75k grant, the finalists receive mentoring and coaching for leadership, internationalisation, business modelling, implementation strategy, market entry, fundraising, negotiating with investors, and much more, through the EIC’s Women Leadership Programme,” the Women TechEU site says.

The deadline for applications is 4 October, 17:00 CET.
