How Does the Women Startup Grants Program Work?
Tech startups play a pivotal role in the future of this world by driving innovative solutions forward. Women Who Tech has launched the Emerging Tech Challenge to fund innovative women-led startups.
Founders will apply to the Women Who Tech Startup Grants Program, and all eligible applications (SEE CRITERIA AND RULES BELOW) will be reviewed by a panel of jurors. Five finalists will be selected to participate in our virtual pitch coaching series and then pitch our investor jury at the end of the program. Women Who Tech will award one Innovation Grant of $15,000 and one Impact Grant of $5,000.
The Emerging Tech Grant is designed to fund women-led ventures focused on solving the biggest problems facing this world.
