We know that the Nords and Balts have a thing for last minute entrepreneurial opportunities. So if you have not yet applied for the Europas Awards, you have until tomorrow to do so. For those of you that are not familiar with Europas, it is a startup award that was co-founded by Mike Butcher from TechCrunch, complete with a daytime unconference and the evening afterparty with bars & other entertainment.
This time around, you need to pre-apply to get a ticket, and to participate in the awards. Which is always nice, as it helps to keep up a high quality of any event.
Pretty much any company can be nominated for the awards for their achievements this year (January 2013 – Summer 2014) and you can even get nominated for multiple award categories. All of which is free, unlike some awards, that are more of a marketing ploy, this one is definitely about quality. To apply for the awards or nominate a startup, go here.
So if you are already coming to our conference – Arctic15:Exit Path on the 27th, 28th of May, then this might be a good destination to go to almost right after as the event will take place on the 10th of June in London.
Due to a lot of demand, the nomination was extended and you can still do it here. The awards have a long history of Nordic companies getting a lot of wins and nominations, so it would be great to see more visibility of the region.
