The Aurora Tech Award is an annual prize for women founders of IT startups whose projects have had the most profound impact on world development. The award was established in order to remind people that women are half of our civilization’s creative intellectual potential. In many technological fields, they have become the driving force behind development and have done a great deal of good in the world. During the Second World War, it was women who deciphered covert Nazi communications, and in the 1960s, it was women scientists who made the Apollo space missions possible.

Despite all obstacles, women IT entrepreneurs are currently creating unique medical solutions, researching voice control, and developing artificial intelligence for unmanned transportation. They are systematically building effective businesses and conquering the global market.

The winner of the award represents freedom of choice. She is independent, compassionate, transcends stereotypes, and does fascinating and important work. So, if you are a woman entrepreneur, and your project has improved the lives of a large number of people, then don’t delay, submit an application today!
