Dear Community,

We’re off! The 12th promotion of the Margaret Awards, the only women’s tech award under the high patronage of the President of the French Republic, is being launched under the theme “Championing Women”, to coincide with the 2024 Olympic Games.

For 12 years, the Margaret Awards have made a significant contribution to the growth and success of a large number of companies and the tech ecosystem in France, Europe, Africa and now Canada.
Our winners include exceptional women such as Roxanne Varza (2017), Lucie Basch (2018), Rebecca Enonchong (2019) or Allyah Semiai (2022).

To all women entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and young girls (aged 7-18) from Europe, Africa and Canada whose innovations address the major challenges facing our society: apply at, from 8 November 2023 to 8 January 2024 at 23:59 GMT+1.

As our international influence expands, we must not forget the emerging talents in our French regions. That’s why, in partnership with the Banque des Territoires, we will be awarding the Margaret “Coup de Cœur des Territoires” award for the first time. This distinction will be awarded to a woman entrepreneur or intrapreneur who plays a key role in the transformation of our regions in France.

Since 2013, JFD has been discovering hundreds of promising women. Together with our partners, we are helping them to go faster and further through our international growth accelerator programme, worth more than €1 million for the winners: training, access to finance, visibility, etc.

La Poste Group, EuraTechnologies, La French Tech, La French Tech Toronto et Montréal, the French Chamber of Commerce in Canada, the France-Canada Chamber of Commerce, Lombard Odier, Meetic Europe, Universal Music France, Eramet, Google, Caisse des Dépôts, la Banque des Territoires, Mastercard, France Télévisions, Franceinfo, Canal+ International, Challenges, France Médias Monde, Science & Vie… continue to work alongside us and support the Margaret Awards. Thank you to all our partners for their trust.

Shaping our future by placing the major issues of our century at the heart of innovation and giving women the place they deserve in our society – that’s been our mission at JFD for 12 years. Join us now!
