Women TechEU call is still open, apply by 4th October 2022, 14:00 (CET)
In June, the European Commission launched the second Women TechEU call. Following the very encouraging response to the first pilot in 2021, the Commission is more than doubling the budget to EUR 10 million this year, which is expected to fund up to 130 companies.
Women TechEU provides support to women-led startups at the earliest, riskiest stage of their company’s growth. In addition to a EUR 75 000 grant, the finalists receive mentoring and coaching for leadership, internationalisation, business modelling, implementation strategy, market entry, fundraising, negotiating with investors, and much more, through the EIC’s Women Leadership Programme.
By supporting women-led deep tech startups, the European Commission aims to create an equal and more prosperous European deep-tech ecosystem. In addition, the Women TechEU scheme promotes female leaders in their industries but also in their capacity of decision-makers.
This scheme is funded under the European Innovation Ecosystems work programme of Horizon Europe, with support from the European Innovation Council (EIC).
