Vote now in The Europas Conference & Awards for European startups

Next Story

Robots add real value when working with humans, not replacing them

In partnership with TechCrunch, The Europas Conference & Awards, which I founded, has come up with a new kind of tech conference. Think of it as a relaxed, summer prelude to the heat of a Disrupt, followed by an all-out celebration of startups. Admittedly, it’s how we like to do things in Europe…

The Europas includes a public vote to determine the industry’s favorites.

Thus, voting has now gone live, so click here to start voting.

This is the final short list from which the winners will be chosen by a combination of industry votes and judges (also speakers at the day-time conference) and announced at an evening awards ceremony.

You can grab tickets here.

The awards are supported by TechCrunch, the official and exclusive media partner. Attendees, nominees and winners will get deep discounts to TechCrunch Disrupt in London, later this year.

Held annually, The Europas are the main European Awards for technology startups. The whole thing comes together on a special awards night in London, on June 14, which is preceded by a smaller scale, but intimate, conference where there is no VIP list and plenty of amazing discussions between founders and investors.

Of course, out of the sheer need to filter the thousands of people in tech startups across Europe, the Awards can’t cover every single startup, investor and entrepreneur. But it’s a selection of amongst the best Europe has to offer. The awards are editorially led, with many nominated and others suggested by judges. There is no charge to enter or be selected or to win. (There is only a charge to attend the awards ceremony, but it’s a super fun event for the whole industry).

So get voting!
