Come learn about how you can become a Technovation mentor and help a team of girls as they design a mobile app for a global competition. Who is eligible to be a Technovation mentor? All professional women who work in the technology industry (either in business or programming) are qualified.

Technovation is run by Iridescent, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and has served over 800 girls in the past three years. Through the twelve week program, students learn about programming, user interface design, market research, and entrepreneurship as they compete to get their app funded and taken to market. This year's challenge is for students to design an app which solves a problem in their local community.
