Women in AI Awards, powered by Capgemini

Let’s honor the top European female entrepreneurs in AI: the pioneers who are taking the road less traveled; the women who are paving the way for others to reach even further and to dare to dream even bigger.


The use of Artificial Intelligence technologies will expand across industries and entire societies, becoming a basic part of everyday life in the years to come. The lack of gender diversity that already impacts the tech industry in many other domains can be reduced if diversity amongst entrepreneurs is promoted. Therefore, this prize aims to have a positive influence on the future of current and upcoming professionals by encouraging profile equity.
The purpose of this prize is to inspire women to take part in AI-related career paths, providing a platform to talents who have launched startups whose products are based on these technologies.
Through this cooperation with Women in AI, Capgemini commits to support women as essential stakeholders in the development of emerging technologies, from data scientists to business leaders. Internally, the Women@Capgemini global program sets the overarching guidelines around gender balance across the Group.

The top 3 winners, in addition to being followed up by the Capgemini Acceleration program, will receive respectively:
·       In 1st place: 5 000 €
·       In 2nd place: 3 000 €
·       In 3rd place: 2 000 €
