EDICOM joins the Technovation Challenge 2019 Programme

Technovation Challenge, -flagship initiative by the non-profit organization Iridescent- is the world’s largest technology business entrepreneurship programme for girls. The programme offers girls from all over the world the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to become entrepreneurs and technology leaders.

EDICOM joins the Technovation Challenge 2019 Programme. Every year,  Technovation Challenge asks girls aged 10 to 18 to draw up a business plan and a mobile application (App) to deal with a social problem. Around 20,000 girls from more than 115 countries signed up for the last edition in 2018.

The Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) is hosting this event in Valencia. The Senior Technical School of Computer Engineering (ETSINF) considers this challenge a very positive activity for its students to take part in as mentors. This participation provides students with a learning experience, building teamwork skills and, above all, developing social awareness based on support for entrepreneurship and technology.

This activity will allow the students to indicate an acknowledgement in their file and, therefore, a direct follow-up from the ETSINF School.

EDICOM, along with the UPV, intends to give visibility to the mentors taking part for the countries driving the fair -Canada and USA- on the basis that it is an international event held worldwide.

Thanks to the sponsorship of technology companies such as EDICOM, a direct team-company relationship is achieved. The company’s role will be to support the final presentation of the project to be held at the Universitat Politècnica de València, and consequently highlight Valencian students.

Once again EDICOM demonstrates its involvement and sensitivity to the social needs of our environment, in this case backing the role of women in technology.
