Every year, Technovation challenges girls to build a business plan & mobile app that addresses a community problem. Since 2009, over 15,000 girls have participated from over 100 countries.

The Technovation Edmonton season runs for 10 weeks from early February to late April 2019, with a live pitch and season wrap up event in early May.
