Nominations are now open – you can submit your nomination here.

ONLY ENTER YOUR COMPANY OR PERSON **ONCE**. THIS IS THE JUDGING STAGE. THIS IS NOT THE VOTING STAGE. Companies that enter themselves more than once will be automatically disqualified.

By overwhelming demand…we’re extending the nominations period for the Europas Awards.

Originally, the awards nominations were to close March 17th, but we are extending the nominations period for another week.

The new deadline is: 24 March 2017 at 23:59 PM GMT

You can apply here: https://podio.com/webforms/17693636/1189276

Note 1: The form is best submitted using Chrome. We’ve had reports that submitting in Safari does not work.

Note 2: You may nominate in as many categories as you believe appropriate. But you may only submit ONE entry per category. For example, say you’re an e-commerce startup with an amazing CEO. You may submit one entry under Hottest E-Commerce / Retail Startup, and one entry under Hottest Startup CEO.

You can nominate an individual (founder, investor, etc), startup, accelerator or venture investor whom you think deserves to be recognized for their achievements in the last 12 months.
