Central European Startup Awards 2015
Thanks to all of the nominees and guests to this years CESA final held in Vienna. I was very pleased to be invited to host what has turned out to be central Europe’s largest non-pitch startup event.
This year the awards attracted over 1,000 applications from 10 countries, each looking to win a prize from one of the 8 categories.
The CESA team introduced The Most Influential Women category this year, in order to raise awareness for women entrepreneurship in the region. Of course, we look forward to the day when the balance has been redressed and this award is re-named ‘Most Influential Person’.
Another new category for 2015 was the ‘Best Social Impact Startup’. Again, a very worthy category indeed. With so much crazy stuff going on in the world it’s only right to acknowledge the entrepreneurs making a difference for the benefit of those in need.
And so, the winners of this years Central European Startup Awards are….
BEST COWORKING OFFICE:
MOST INFLUENTIAL WOMAN:
BEST FINTECH STARTUP:
BEST USER EXPERIENCE:
BEST CLOUD/DATA APPLICATION:
BEST SOCIAL IMPACT STARTUP:
STARTUP OF THE YEAR:
Well done to all of the team at CESA for an outstanding event and congratulations to all of the winners. I look forward to hosting next years awards with you again!
