• A celebration of the Women of the Portuguese Tech Scene!

    After the previous year's successes, impacting hundreds of women and boosting thousands from the tech industry, we are back to celebrate the women who have the biggest impact on the Portuguese startup ecosystem.


    The 2020 edition will be a special edition, starting earlier (July) and building momentum online ‘till the launch of the results, in September, on the September/October edition of Revista PESSOAS.


    The Awards are a moment of celebration for our community and the work done in the past few years. It is, at its core, an initiative by the community and for the community.
