As part of Doteveryone, 5050tech Challenge is a new national challenge designed to encourage gender balance across the technology sector.

In partnership with Sage, we’re looking for start-ups based in the UK with at least one female co-founder seeking early-stage or seed funding to be a part of our inaugural event where they will pitch and demo to a room of VCs and angels in a bid to secure investment after a day of training from leading mentors in this space.

Your business should be an internet-enabled technology company, and can be in any area of technology eg finance, health, education, and either for-profit or social enterprise.

This event is the beginning of an exciting mission and we hope you will be a part of it!

Deadline for applications is 18 March 2016.
