“Kaspersky Lab is formally committing to supporting women into technology careers with its CyberStarts initiative, and being able to forge an ongoing relationship with such a dynamic organisation as Girls in Tech will help us come closer to our goal.”
The winner of this competition receives a prize, as well as access to mentoring and coaching to further develop their startup. This year’s winner was a French team called Altaroad, a road infrastructure platform which specialises in developing a platform that could be used for road operators or city traffic managers to manage autonomous and connected cars.
Dr Jamie Soon, managing director of Girls in Tech in Paris said: “Thanks to the generous support from Kaspersky Lab, we are able to send the winning entrepreneurial women from Amplify on an all-expenses-paid residency week, focused on entrepreneurship, in Singapore, in honour of the France-Singapore Year of Innovation.
“This will allow them to gain experience in the local ecosystem and learn and receive support from our local partners on how to build relevance for the Asian market. Girls in Tech is dedicated to promoting careers in technology to young women and committed to developing initiatives that support this goal.”
