Technovation Chapters

Technovation Chapters are regional hubs for Technovation activity. Chapters are led by Regional Ambassadors or Student Ambassadors, who are approved through an application process. Chapters are primarily responsible for recruiting students, mentors and judges, organizing launch and regional pitch events, field trips, and fundraising for the local operations.

Chapters are officially recognized by Technovation and support both corporate and community partnerships to ensure the sustainability of the local program. 

If you're interested in developing a smaller Technovation community at your school or program, you can start a Technovation Club.

Technovation Clubs

Technovation Clubs are a great way to meet your fellow Technovation participants! Anyone can start a club at a school or an organization and join up to work through the curriculum, practice pitching, tour local companies, and generally support one another during the season and beyond.

We recommend that students interested in starting a club take the following steps:

 

  • Find an adult advisor. This can be a teacher, parent, or someone you look up to in your community. Their primary role will be to help you find a safe space to meet to work on your apps and business plans, but they can also help connect you with local professionals for tours and interviews, or be an early test audience for your app.
  • Recruit like-minded girls! Announce your club at your school's activity fair, or table in the lunchroom. Ask if you can make an announcement before class starts, and reach out to your friends and encourage them to join you! You can even print and share these recruitment postcards and flyers.
  • Invite professionals to be guest speakers, or organize a tour of a local business. Reach out to local businesses in your area, introduce yourself, and ask if someone can give a tour and a brief talk to a group of highly motivated young women!
