WomenTechEU Open Call

WomenTechEU is a 2-year EU-funded project supporting women leading deep tech startup companies from Europe.

Its mission is to create a more gender-balanced entrepreneurship ecosystem. They believe that diversity drives innovation, and we are here to provide women in deep tech with more opportunities, resources, and support to thrive.

The project consortium is launching 4 calls for applications over the span of 2 years which, following a rigorous evaluation process, will result in a total of 160 beneficiaries. Each beneficiary will receive €75k grants (non-dilutive finance) as well as a personalised business development programme which includes mentoring, coaching and targeted training among other options.
