The 2018 instalment is being promoted as ‘one global challenge – two themes’ and is targeted at startups developing products and services that can support HR teams get it right when it comes to gender practices and recruitment; or innovations that can provide ‘learning, coaching and mentoring solutions’ to individuals and teams to better facilitate the growth of ‘gender-balance’ leadership structures.

Finalists will be given an exhibition booth and the opportunity to pitch to investors, with the winner receiving additional branding and networking support.
