The members of The Europas Awards Advisory Board have been pouring over the entries, and your votes to their winners and finalists. What’s so great about this year’s board (just as with last year’s) is that we have a fantastic spread of experience across the spectrum of the tech scene in Europe, and people who really know the scene inside and out. Their choices will be heavily informed by the industry’s choices via the public voting (that’s you guys). And of course it goes without saying that they won’t be able to vote for any company (or person for that matter) in which they have any kind interest or association.
Here at TechCrunch Europe HQ we can see just how much and how often everyone is voting in these awards (thanks to PollDaddy) and it’s fascinating to see the voting live.
