Team with Waterloo links among winners at Technovation Girls global tech competition

Tuesday, August 17, 2021

A regional team linked with the University of Waterloo was named among the winners of the global Technovation Girls app development competition.

Aiuto Solutions was awarded the first-ever COVID Economic Recovery prize, recognizing their work to develop an app to connect donors and charities. The app provides a means of forging stronger relationships in the not-for-profit and NGO sectors. The name Aiuto means ‘help’ in Italian. 

Teams in Technovation Girls make apps that address a specific social need. As part of the program, students learn about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), promoted by the United Nations. SDGs have categories for human health and well-being, climate action, poverty reduction and gender equality.
