The global startup awards recognises those hard working entrepreneurs & organisations throughout regions around the world


Starting in the Nordics in 2012, the Global Startup Awards annually selects and awards those within their respective regional tech / web industries that have shown outstanding achievements in business and service to the community.

Working with local national partners in each of our regions, we go on an annual expedition to find those companies and individuals that within the last 5 years have gone on to become a game changer or inspiration to thousands, if not millions or billions of users and fans -  a rarity considering these numbers are something that other industries have taken many decades to achieve.

Each region is capped with a Grand Finale to bring together the nations that participate for a night of celebration, recognition and networking. 

Growing to now over 34 countries in 2017, the awards will be present in over 45 countries by the end of 2017, and will look to connect not only nationalities, but regions from throughout the world to determine who those deserving individuals and companies that deserve the recognition for their hard work and late nights.

From national entrepreneurial bodies through to universities, public institutions & media partners, we're proud to work alongside the listed organisations below amongst many, many more to help bring the awards together each year.
