Les Margaret Awards reward digital women’s creativity, innovation and audacity.

Founded in 2013 by JFD, les Margaret Awards reward every year European and African women entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, whose projects and innovation meet the major challenges of our society. The award is named after Margaret Hamilton, director of the software engineering division that developed the embedded software for NASA’s Apollo space program.

JURY LES MARGARET 2021

« Never let fear get in your way! Do not be afraid to continue even when so-called “experts” say it’s impossible. Do not be afraid to be alone, to be different, to deceive yourself, to do and recognize your mistakes, because only those who dare to fail greatly can accomplish great things.»
Margaret Hamilton
