Identifying the hottest startups in Europe
"Europe needs real entrepreneurs to put itself back on the map again. Vigour and drive, the willingness to transform and develop are what's required. Not all hot startups are built in Silicon Valley – we're seeing very talented entrepreneurs with big ideas and great execution all over the world. These startups need to be discovered and their stories need to be told. The TNW Startup Awards tour around Europe helps to identify and shine a light on the best startups, their entrepreneurs and investors in each country," says Patrick de Laive, co-founder of The Next Web.
The categories are Startup of the Year, Best (Co-)Founder, Best Web App, Best Mobile App, Best Design, Best User Experience and Best Investor.
