How it works
1 Nomination opens online: everyone is invited to nominate a startup or an ecosystem supporter in all categories.
2 After nominations are closed, a shortlist on national level is announced (picked by the country partners together with their national ambassadors). Peers, friends and everyone is invited to publicly vote for their favorite startups on a national level.
3 National winners are chosen among the shortlisted by a jury. There are minimum 5 jury members for each category. The public votes count for one jury member. Voting opens again after national winners are announced.
4 Regional winners are chosen among the national winners by a prominent, international jury board. Again, the public votes count for one jury member.
5 The best of the region in each category are announced on the Grand Finale event
