Ladies, this one's for you!
We have a great opportunity to share with all of you who have already developed innovations and successfully found a market for them:
The European Commission has launched the fifth edition of the EU Prize for Women Innovators to award outstanding female innovators and to empower more women to follow their entrepreneurial dreams.
Applicants have to have founded a successful company and brought an innovation to the market plus they need to have received benefits from an R&I funding and be a EU citizen (Or a citizen of one of the countries from this list)
The award criteria are ambitious as you have to outline the societal impact of your company, present your successes in as many European countries as you can and also show your personal impact on the positive development of the company in your role as a leader. Get more detailed info about the criteria on the website and watch the video.
As money is a catalyst to drive start-ups forward even more, the award is endowed with the following prizes:
First Prize: €100 000, second Prize: €50 000, third Prize: €30 000
and the prize for rising innovator: €20 000!
