WATCH THIS: The Internet of Moving Things

20th September 2016 Posted by: Francesca Turauskis - Managing Editor

APPLICATIONS for the EU Women Innovators Award 2017 began on 13th September. Currently, women make up only 30% of all entrepreneurs in Europe, and this award aims to highlight the achievements of female entrepreneurs. Since it began in 2011, more than 260 women have entered. The previous winners are from a wide range of countries, from Ireland to Finland. Last year’s winner, Dr Susana Sargento, is from Portugal. Her company, Veniam, developed a way of turning vehicles into wifi hotspots. In this video, she talks about the project, and winning the award.   

This year there are four prizes, including a grand prize of €100,000. For the first time, there is also a €20,000 Rising Innovator prize for entrepreneurs under the age of 35years.

The 2017 winners will be announced around the 8th March 2017, to coincide with International Women’s Day.
