In the run up to this year’s The Next Web Conference Europe, we’ve been running Startup Awards competitions and meetups in countries across the continent over the past two months. Now that we’re back home and have recovered from get-togethers in 12 cities, it’s time to round up all the winners.

Winners were selected from public nominations and public voting, with oversight from The Next Web to make sure that the companies in the running were legitimate tech startups and not ‘Bob’s Print Shop, Bar & Grill’ looking for a little ill-deserved glory (trust us, they tried!).

The winners each receive a ticket to The Next Web Conference Europe. Hopefully we’ll see you there too on 25-26 April 2013 in Amsterdam. Tickets are available now. If you move quickly, you’ll be able to grab a super early bird discount (32% off!) and join the TNW Academy class Let’s Fix Your Pitch by Brad McCarty for free.

So, here are all the winners, presented in the order the awards took place. Congratulations to everyone below, and it was great meeting you while we were on the road.
