JFD is inviting women from Europe and Africa who are making big technology investments that lead to game-changing inventions to apply for the 2023 Margaret Awards, which are available to 3 groups: Entrepreneur, Intrapreneur, and Junior.

This year again, JFD will reward women from Europe and Africa for their creativity, audacity and innovation through 3 award categories: Entrepreneur, Intrapreneur and Junior, each of which will include a European and African winner.
Who is it For?
Les Margaret Awards are given to female citizens of European or African nations who prioritize innovation in their work and who have developed digital projects across all industries as a result. These projects address one or more societal and environmental problems and are disruptive innovations that boost our economies and create jobs.
Candidates can apply in 3 categories:
- Entrepreneur: for female founders or co-founders of tech start-ups;
- Intrapreneur: for women working for companies who have developed an innovative project in agreement with their employer while remaining employed;
- Junior: for girls aged between 7 and 18 who have an idea, a concept, a start-up project that responds to a problem through the application of a technology or those who have developed a prototype (robot, game, app…) using one or several technologies.
Benefits of Les Margaret Awards
The JFD Acceleration Program will provide the Margarets in the Entrepreneur and Intrapreneur categories with media exposure worth €1 million for a year, speaking opportunities at significant international events, digital equipment, coaching/mentoring sessions with JFD partners, and financing.
The Margaret Juniors will get specialized assistance for the growth of their initiatives, as well as digital tools and a €1000 scholarship. They will also receive high media exposure, mentoring, and coaching from the JFD partners.
