Applications for the 2018 program will be accepted May 1-July 1.
Girls in grades 6-12 (as of the 2017-2018 school year) may apply to serve as Junior Judges for our annual Fast Pitch competition. As “VCs for a day” the girls vote for their winning company and present a $5,000 cash award.
The Junior Judges program now operates under WFN’s nonprofit, Women Founders Foundation (WFF). The mission of WFF is to educate women and girls about entrepreneurship and the life of a business from ideation to long-term success.

“I liked the fact that I was able to talk to other young and ambitious judges. I also really liked listening to the pitches and being surprised by some of the presentations.”
“I really liked learning more about what it takes to start a business and be a successful entrepreneur. I also liked learning about how to build a strong team and how to raise capital.”
“This was a great experience for my daughter. It was fun but also made her think about careers and entrepreneurship in a more concrete way. The first thing she said after the Fast Pitch was ‘Can I do this again next year?’”
