The Europas Awards are back for our 14th year of recognising the hottest tech startups across Europe.
We’re actively scouting startups for each category, but you can also nominate a startup, accelerator, or venture fund that you think deserves to be recognised for their achievements in the last 12 months (1 January 2021 - 31 December 2021).
To be eligible in the startup category, you must be a late-stage seed or Series A startup.
If you are bootstrapped, you must be generating sustainable revenues of at least £500,000 a year.
For unicorns minted in the last year (1 January 2021 - 31 December 2021), you can apply to Unicorn of the Year.
For scaleups with at least Series B funding, you can apply to Scaleup of the Year.
There are 25 categories, with 21 aimed at startups, and four at investors.
B2B SaaS / Enterprise
eCommerce + Retail
Impact Tech / Tech For Good
Media + Entertainment
Scaleup of the Year
Sustainability / Circular
Unicorn of the Year
The awards evening will be held in person on 1 November 2022 in Lisbon, Portugal, at Factory Lisbon at 20:00, to align with Web Summit’s opening evening. All startups who are entered in The Europas will receive a pass to attend the in-person awards. For those who cannot attend the in-person event, we will also be streaming the event live.
Entries close 19 August 2022, 23:59 BST. Questions about the awards? Ask at firstname.lastname@example.org.
