About Technovation Ottawa

Over a period of 12 weeks, teams with three to five members, mentored by a women in tech, learn how to develop a concept for an application addressing an issue or need identified in their community, map out a business plan, and create a prototype app, all while learning the basics of marketing and programming.  The teams meet weekly at one of the local high-tech sponsors facilities – IBM, Pythian, Shopify and L-Spark. At the weekly meet ups volunteers from Carleton University’s Technology Innovation Management Program (TIM) deliver the curriculum, and guest speakers join to inspire the students on related topics.
