Congratulations to our 2019 Appapalooza Winners

Congratulations to our 2019 Appapalooza Winners

Today we hosted our 6th annual Appapalooza! We started in 2014, with 11 teams and 48 girls and today we are here with 87 teams and 348 girls.

These girls worked thousands of hours planning and coding their apps and defining their business. They presented their pitches to all friends, family, supporters and our esteemed judges. Along the way, they learned how to research a market, think like a designer, create a pitch and demo videos and work within a team.

Below are the 9 teams that will move on to the semi-finals for a chance to compete at the global Technovation Challenge.
