WHY APPLY TO THE EUROPAS

Six great reasons to apply to The Europas today.

The Europas Awards identifies and celebrates the most promising startups in Europe. We actively scout a long list of late seed to series A startups we think have the potential to succeed. If you have not yet received an invitation and you think you fit the criteria, we encourage you to enter for the opportunity to position your organisation alongside these other promising startups.

 01. IN GOOD COMPANY

Every year, The Europas Awards attracts an enviable list of experts who come together to evaluate each nomination and vote for their favourites. Judges include high profile founders, senior tech journalists, academics, policy makers and investors.

 02. LEADING JUDGES

Unlock at least two weeks of social media exposure for your business. The ‘public vote’ stage of the judging process allows all longlisted applicants to benefit from considerable social media exposure. Rally your fans and or user base to encourage votes. Applicants will be notified in advance to allow time to prepare social media campaigns. Bios of shortlisted and longlisted candidates will also be published on the Europas website in a galley that users can peruse.

 03. PR AND MARKETING

This year, The Europas returns live for our awards evenings. Our conference of deep dives and workshops will be held online with the aim of providing a high quality networking event grounded in editorial content. Last year we programmed over 24 hours on online events designed to encourage interaction and inspire conversation. We’ve also put in place a mobile app in which you can also network further.

 04. BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES

Take your business to the next level and participate in a series of virtual workshops. The workshops are designed to help you understand what it takes to be a world-class tech company. Expert professionals who have helped propel many startups to unicorn status will contribute to the sessions alongside Mike Butcher and the wider Europas team. The workshops are now virtual and you will be able to ask questions and interact with the speakers.

 05. LEARN FROM THE EXPERTS

The awards entry fee is £395 + VAT where applicable. The fee includes your application fee. It also includes for all entrants, and not just the long and shortlisted startups, your entry to the online conference and in-person awards.

 06. SIMPLE PRICING 

Join the ranks of Europe’s elite startups who have won at The Europas. Since 2009, starting in a Soho pub in London, we've been identifying and celebrating Europe's leading tech startups.
