WOMEN IN TECH DEMO DAYS

PRESENTED BY CAPITAL ONE

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ANGELHACK & WOMEN WHO CODE


STEP 1: Build an app that supports women and girls in tech
STEP 2: Demo your project in front of prominent industry leaders
STEP 3: Walk away with a $10k General Assembly scholarship for your team plus tickets to Capital One's Women in Tech Experience in Virginia, November 2017!
 
At Capital One, we know it’s vital to use innovation and talent for the greater good, and we invest in our communities so that more people have access to the technology they need to succeed in the 21st century. We're proud to help foster a love of tech in girls and support women technologists to thrive in their careers, communities, and leadership.

 

*All proceeds from registration fees will be donated to Women Who Code.

Representation matters and it can be more difficult to become what you can't see. Empower girls and women by building a technical solution (mobile app, web app, etc.) to address one of these challenges:


  • Unconscious Bias: Create unique, technology-driven tools that can help anyone learn about how to identify, understand and improve the influence of unconscious bias in the workplace
  • Powered by Perspective: Create a tool that helps male allies learn ways to support women in the workplace and tech community
  • Investing in Networks: Build technology that helps women in tech find resources, events, and networking opportunities to connect with other women in tech in their region
  • Celebrating Role Models: Develop a solution that highlights senior women leaders in tech and tells their stories, with the goal of inspiring girls and younger women to pursue tech careers

Participants will be allowed to begin working on their hack before the Saturday of the event. Come with a creation or build something amazing on-site with judges and mentors at the event to provide feedback for final adjustments early in the day. Then in the afternoon, all the projects will be showcased to the judges to determine the winner!

You’ll be able to work on your project from home (or wherever!), and then show up in person for Demo Day to present!

Winners of the Women in Tech Demo Day will be selected by a panel of five-to-seven judges for each city that includes industry leaders, media, industry influencers and a Capital One representative. Specific names will be announced leading into the event.


  • Simplicity (5 points): Is the application simple to use and can the team explain it clearly in three sentences or less?
  • Creativity (5 points): How creative was the team in developing an innovative solution for the challenge?
  • Impact (5 points): Did the team create an application that can have a real and valuable impact?
  • Design (5 points): Was the UX/UI intuitive and appealing?

All participants must agree to the terms and conditions
