The Europas are the premier awards for early, mid, and late stage technology startups, as well as leading investors and media in the EMEA regions.
The Awards celebrate the most forward thinking, progressive and innovative tech companies across over 20 categories. Startups can apply for an award or be nominated by someone else, and winners are selected by a panel of judges, with public and peer voting for certain awards.
For the last three years The Europas have grown and grown under the guidance of TechCrunch's fantastic European Editor Mike Butcher. Mike is now taking a back seat and the Web Summit team are going to bring their experience running the 4,000+ Web Summit to bear to create an incredible event on the evening of Tuesday 22nd January 2013 in Berlin. You can read Mike's post on TechCrunch about the Europas here.
The awards have been expanded to include over 20 categories. A fun and fantastic awards ceremony will be followed by an after party in one of Berlin's hottest venues.
The Europas is a chance for you and your team to celebrate a year of hard of work alongside Europe, the Middle East, and Africa's leading startups, investors and media over one incredible night in Berlin.
They take place in the Postbahnhof in Berlin on Tuesday 22nd January 2013, kicking off at 7pm.
