Les Margaret 2023 Awards for Women Entrepreneurs
The Les Margaret 2023 Awards is inviting women from Europe and Africa. They require people who are making risky technology bets that lead to game-changing inventions to apply for the 2023 Margaret Awards.
On April 17, 2023, in Paris, the prize presentation will be placed under the distinguished patronage of the President of the French Republic.
JFD has chosen to go above and beyond its promise by putting the issue of the gender investment gap in initiatives spearheaded by Women in Digital at the top of its agenda.
In order to develop and promote investment in women in tech, the 2022-2023 program’s main subject will be “Invest in Her,” which will bring together female leaders, investors, entrepreneurs, advisers, and the media throughout the ensuing months.
