The Aurora Tech Award is an annual global prize for women founders of tech startups. We believe in breaking down barriers and promoting equality in tech entrepreneurship
Women entrepreneurs in IT face challenges like investor bias, stereotypes, and a lack of role models, limiting their representation.
According to Crunchbase, only 2.3% of venture funding goes to women-led startups. And we’re here to change that! Our mission is to discover hidden gems among startups led by women, providing the support they need to shine brightly. Join us in setting new, fair standards in the venture world.
If you’re a woman founder with a tech startup, regardless of the specific industry, and have a functional prototype or an early version of your product, the Aurora Tech Award is just for you.
