Last year, Viva Technology and 50inTech hosted the first Female Founder Challenge (FFC), whose objective was to accelerate the financing of women-led startups thanks to meetings with investors from all over the world. With the ongoing situation, the 2nd edition of the FFC is 100% online and open only to VCs!
In May, EY pre-screened the 400 applications from 54 countries to identify 30 top ones, which has been rated by our VC Jury to reveal the 10 finalists. These 10 startups will compete during a pitch contest to get the opportunity to meet investors in a virtual VC Office Hours and determine this year's winner. Cédric O, Minister of State for Digital of France, will do us the honour of presenting this award.
