global startup awards is the largest independent startup ecosystem competition with THE MISSION TO FIND, recogniZE and connect the futureshapers of the digital age from all around the world
Starting in the Nordics, Denmark 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 partners in each of our regions, we go on an annual expedition to find those companies and individuals that 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 Day where the bests - together with the other stakeholders - are invited to participate in a closed, invite-only Ecosystem Summit and a night of celebration, recognition and networking.
One of our most important values is to respect the independence of the competition, so we under no circumstances sell data to anyone, and we never charge our nominees, applicants and winners for anything related to the competition or the events.
Global Startup Awards is already present in over 60 countries of 3 continents and growing fast.
From national entrepreneurial bodies through universities, public institutions & media partners, we are proud to work with the listed organisations below amongst many, many more to help bring the awards together each year.
