Kide Science Chosen for Female Edtech Fellowship Grant

The fellowship is a 6-month programme for women founders in Edtech to help build strong business networks, increase access to funding, and create inclusive environments.

A global survey by HolonIQ shows that only 13% (104) of women CEO lead the top 800 Edtech companies worldwide compared to 87% of men, despite women playing a prominent role in positions such as school teachers and principals (70% of the world's primary school teachers are women).

The Female Edtech Fellowship grant wants to change that by helping existing women founders grow their businesses and becoming role models for the next generation of entrepreneurs.

According to the Female Edtech Fellowship grant:

"We believe in the power of networks. With this fellowship we wish to revisit traditional business networks to make this one more result-oriented in order to help female-led businesses step up:

The female edtech fellowship is meant to be a strong business focused network for the most promising women founders in European Edtech.

Our fellowship is dedicated to women ready to help each other and benefit from the collective knowledge & intelligence to scale and solve business issues."

Kide Science's CEO and Founder Sari Hurme-Mehtälä has been chosen as one of 14 in the first cohort out of over 110 applications. 

The fellowship is conducted in cooperation with the European Edtech Alliance and Supercharger Ventures.
