EC launches second Women TechEU call
On 21 June 2022, the European Commission launched the second Women TechEU call, which follows a successful first pilot in 2021. This year, up to 130 deep-tech start-ups led by women will receive funding worth €10 million, as well as business acceleration services to grow into tomorrow's female tech leaders. This scheme is funded under the European Innovation Ecosystems (EIE) work programme of Horizon Europe, with support from the European Innovation Council (EIC).
Women TechEU provides support to women-led startups at the earliest, riskiest stage of their company's growth. In addition to a €75,000 grant, the finalists receive mentoring and coaching through the EIc's Women Leadership Programme. Applications are open until 4 October 2022, 17:00 (Brussels time).
