R/GA be returning to Cannes to host the R/GA Innovation Exchange program focused on supporting the global female founder ecosystem.
In its fifth year at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, this program will expand the marketing and advertising focus to tech startups in the growing sphere of purpose-driven companies. International Female Founders building B2C purpose-driven tech companies are encouraged to apply now through May 15th.
By providing the selected startups with hands-on support from some of the world’s best communicators and R/GA creative resources, the Innovation Exchange helps founders sharpen their brand identity, focus their business proposition, and more effectively align their products and services to the needs of global brands and markets.
They’re looking for startups that are female-founded, have significant female ownership, or have a female CEO or CTO. Ideal candidates have a minimum viable product, but they do not have any requirements around investment, customers, or revenue.
