Nominations for the Europas now open!

Nominations for the Europas, the premier awards of European tech startups, have opened.

The awards celebrate the “forward thinking, progressive and innovative tech companies” across over twenty categories.

This year, the awards will be held in London on June 10th and will span over a daytime event, The Gathering, an evening awards ceremony and party, and a VIP dinner and after-party.

Be a part of the Europas

Startups and people can apply for an award or be nominated by someone else.

Entries are open until April 11th. Make sure you get your entry in so you don’t miss your startups chance to shine on the European stage

A shortlist is then selected by a panel of judges, followed by public peer voting and then a final ruling by the judges.

Europas

Everyone is invited

This year, for the first time, organisers are asking people to apply for a ticket to The Europas.

Many will be invited for their connections to the tech startup ecosystem that we all know and love. They also want to hear from those who would deem themselves “unconnected or outside the ecosystem” to bring fresh blood to the scene.

London’s Success

London based startups dominated the awards in 2013.

Both startups and personel won or were runners-up across many of the categories.
