Following the launch workshop and code-girls meet-ups that spanned for four months (i.e. from January to April 2023), Technovation South-South Nigeria organizes her Regional Pitch Event on the 19th and 20th of May, 2023 at the University of Calabar International Conference Centre, Calabar, Cross River State, Nigeria. This event hosted about 300 attendees including contestants, parents, mentors, volunteers, staff and management of the respective schools from Calabar and Uyo.

47 teams of girls ages 8-18 took the stage on the 19th and 20th of May, 2023 at the University of Calabar International Conference Center, to talk about their problems and the solution they found. These young girls have spent the last 4 months identifying a global technology entrepreneurship program that challenges girls to develop a mobile application to solve an issue they have identified in their community. Some of the problems addressed by their invented mobile apps included low student performances in high school, food waste, climate change, awareness of Asthma, skin diseases and insecurity of judges from the tech industry.

Amid the tough competition, 5 teams emerged as winners for the three respective divisions (i.e. 2 teams for the Beginner division, 2 teams for the Junior division, and a team for the Senior division). These 5 teams (representing South-South Nigeria) will now be advancing to the virtual semi-final round where judges from around the world will evaluate their submissions.
