    Clear Returns, a Glasgow-based company which specializes in returns software for retailers, has won the European Tech All Stars startup competition, besting a total of more than 400 entrants.

    The final leg of the multi-stage competition (which is a part of the European Commission’s Startup Europe initiative) saw 12 finalists take the stage at the Founders Forum in London across June 11 and 12.

    Although Clear Returns emerged victorious, it was chosen alongside two other finalists – Parx Plastics and Triggertrap – and all three received the same €20,000 worth of credits towards Google Cloud Platform services.

    TNW Editor-in-Chief Martin Bryant was one of the panel that whittled the entrants down to the final 12. Last year’s competition was won by Ireland-based Trustev.
