At the annual TNW Europe Conference today, Somewhere – a platform that wants to reinvent how we approach our professional lives – and Teamleader – a CRM and team management platform – scooped our startup prize awards.
Somewhere took first prize in our Boost program (powered by Braintree), fending off more than 150 other entrants and winning jury approval to take home a €25,000 marketing credit courtesy of TNW. It’s not just about on-site ads though, that credit can be put towards anything, and the team also gets a half-day consultation with TNW’s VP of Design and a half-day with our VP of Business Development.
“Our early-stage startup program Boost, which we first launched in 2014, is all about connecting startups to the three most important resources needed to grow: new customers, media coverage and external capital,” TNW’s Director of Events Wytze de Haan, says.
Teamleader, which is taking home the henQ award, will get a €100,000 investment and was chosen by henQ from across all of the Boost entrants this year.
