The Europas are the TechCrunch Europe Awards for technology companies. TechCrunch is one of the most famous tech and start-up blogs and therefore a great platform to present your own company. Being nominated for the Europas is even a bigger achievement.
The Awards Night will be held on July 9th in London. 400 start-ups from Europe and EMEA were voted on by users and 19 experts. Among the 400 entrants, there were several Swiss startups, namely Amazee, Doodle, NewsCred, RouteRank, Poken, Wuala, Zattoo and Kooaba as well as the Swiss Venture Fund Index Ventures and three start-ups with Swiss co-founders, precisely Amiando, Busuu, Kyte.
I was very happy to see now some many of these companies still in the running after the vote. They are represented in 6 out of 14 categories. Being among the top five and therefore nominated for the Europas is a fantastic accomplishment. Congratulations!
