Would you like to bring more attention to your startup from the Central European region? Then don’t miss the opportunity to be nominated for the Central European Startup Awards! If you want to apply or recommend someone for the biggest no-pitch, no-conference startup festival in the Central European region, then the time to do it is now, before they close their application window very soon!
The Central European Startup Awards is a unique awards show, committed to advocating for and celebrating the startup spirit of the CE region and to pinning the region to the global startup map. The wider ‘Startup Awards’ series brings together 10 countries, nearly 4,000 startups and their ecosystems for the second time this year, following the Nordic Startup Awards.
Nominations are still open on the website and anyone can nominate their startup hero across 8 categories. The best of the best will be announced in each country between late August and early September, and the ‘crème de la crème’ will go on to compete in the Grand Finale. The CESA Jury Board, who are charged with predicting the next superstars of the CE startup ecosystem, includes acclaimed think tanks and opinion leaders such as John Biggs (TechCrunch), Sean Percival (500 Startups), Johann Brennen (Creandum), Shira Abel (Hunter and Bard) and Gunnar Froh (Wunder).
In addition to being given feedback from the prestigious Jury Board and receiving endorsement as the ‘best startups in the region’, nominees will also have a chance to win awesome prizes, which will be announced shortly. Take your chance and apply today! (Update – August 2023: The website seems to be out of use, and we therefore deactivated the original link).
The first Central European Startup Awards was organised in 2014 with 8 participating countries, more than 1000 online nominations and 350 Grand Finale attendees in Budapest. This year the Grand Finale will be held on 8 October in Vienna, at Hotel Schani. See you there!
