"My World Pitch experience has, in the most clichéd manner, changed my life. In the past two years, I've gone from zero coding experience to teaching a group of underprivileged girls in my community how to code, starting my own company, and developing my app Cappable."

"I am still very grateful to this project, because it has opened so many opportunities for us since that [World Pitch] summer.

Now I want to share my knowledge with future Technovation generations, want them to believe in themselves, and not to be afraid of new horizons!"

-  Alina D.
2016 World Pitch Finalist (Kazakhstan)

"I think your cause is a great one, and has really made a difference already for the girls participating at my school this year. They went from "We can't do this, we're not good enough," to "Let's work every day so we can win!""
