I just got back from Berlin, arguably Europe’s hottest startup city (more on that later), where this year’s The Europas awards show was held.
A collaboration between Paddy Cosgrave and his untirable Web Summit team, and TechCrunch’s Mike Butcher, The Europas basically aims to shine a bright light on Europe’s best entrepreneurs, startups and investors (among other categories).
The Next Web was very proud and happy to support the event, because celebrating entrepreneurship across Europe is something that we encourage everyone to do more often – we also do our part with the Europioneers and the Europe Startup Awards.
