Meet talented female founders - and maybe the next unicorn. 🦄

In the first all-female pitching competition in Finland, you can get to know the graduates of two new programs for female and non-binary entrepreneurs: The Shortcut Spark Academy and Tech Nordic Advocate's Helsinki Female Tech Founder Frontrunners program.

Our graduates will give their best pitches of their companies and compete for the prize money of €15.000, proudly supported by Google.

This year´'s pitches come from health tech, wellbeing, elderly care to EdTech (and more). The pitching is followed by lunch and the announcement of the winner!
