Why should you nominate a startup for CESAwards?

CESAwards is in-deed a regional competition but it nevertheless attracts attention on a global scale. Participating as a nominee ensures the startup will get the attention of the press and high level investors from VC firms such as Hoxton Ventures or Index Ventures.

The decision on who are the next superstars of the CEE startup ecosystem is decided by the CESAwards Jury Board, which includes acclaimed think tanks, opinion leaders and industry experts like the co-founders of companies such as Electronic Arts or CyberDust.

The possibilities for entrepreneurs and startups in the region to meet with innovators, investors and pioneers of the tech & startup ecosystem and gain visibility in new markets are endless, which is also the sole purpose of the CESAwards – to show the world the innovation power Central and Eastern Europe possesses.
