WOMEN IN TECH DEMO DAYS
PRESENTED BY CAPITAL ONE
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ANGELHACK
STEP 1: Build an app that supports women and girls in tech
STEP 2: Demo you project in front of prominent industry leaders
STEP 3: Walk away with a $10k General Assembly scholarship for your team plus the non profit partner will get a $15k grant in your honor!
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.
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 support a local nonprofit:
- New York City Challenge (Girls Who Code): Help inspire more girls to learn coding by creating a solution that enables girls to imagine themselves as computer scientists.
- D.C. Metro Challenge (Black Girls CODE): Help inspire more girls of color to learn coding by creating a solution that enables our tech divas to imagine themselves as computer scientists.
- Plano (Girls, Inc.): Use your technical skills to create a project that capture's the daily experiences of a girl in America. Showcase individual stories through digital diaries, letters, testimonials, poems, etc. The goal is to use technology to better comprehend the challenges and joys that make up girlhood, so that these stories can reach a wider audience. We believe that by showcasing these unique stories potential mentors will want to positively impact girls’ lives and help them reach their fullest potential. We are looking for a tool that can help share stories from girls, alumnae, volunteers, parents, donors and teachers.
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, as well as one representative from each partnering nonprofit.

- 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?
