Looking for the Slovenian Start-up of the Year 2016!

Day 12. April 2016 posted Stanislava Vabšek
Personal consultation from Marvin Liao, partner of the elite American accelerator 500 startups, attending the DEMO Day of the ABC Accelerator, and an all-inclusive package for the Pioneers Festival in Vienna are this year’s main prizes for the Slovenian Startup of the Year 2016. This award wants to find, expose to the media and reward ambassadors of Slovenian startup entrepreneurship. Those startups whose achievements, actions, reputation and development potential present a new generation of Slovenian innovative entrepreneurs. You can help us by nominating a company you think truly deserves such a title until 20 April.

Upgrade to the competition

This year, we’ve somewhat upgraded the selection of startups trying to get the award Slovenian Startup of the Year.
Besides the five best participants of the Start:up Slovenia competition, where the younger startups or the so-called young challengers compete, the final selection will also feature five startups nominated by active stakeholders of the public and private Slovenian startup ecosystem.
And here’s where we need your help!

Nominate your candidate

If you work for an organization that accelerates startup entrepreneurship (incubators, technology parks, accelerators, business angels, venture capital funds, startup media, public agencies and funds …) we invite you to nominate one startup company that you think deserves this title. The deadline is 20 April 2016.

The voice of entrepreneurs also counts

Entrepreneurs, if you feel that your team or achievements, actions, reputation and development potentials shouldn’t be overlooked or if you maybe know a company that deserves such an award, connect with the closest incubator, technology park, accelerator … that can take your suggestion into consideration when choosing the nomination.
Submit your vote until 20 April 2016!
