StartUp Europe Awards will be at the StartUp Europe Summit on the 9th and 10th June

Juan Manuel Revuelta, the General Director for Finnova, the foundation for the innovation based in Brussels, will present the StartUp Europe Awards in the StartUp Europe Summit to be held on the 9th and 10th June in Berlin.

This is an initiative promoted by the European Commission and implemented by the Foundation Finnova.  The main aim of StartUp Europe Awards is to recognise the effort made by the start-ups across Europe in eight different areas: Environment, Social, ICTs, Energy, Tourism, Cities, Water and Creative industries, as well as to reward the start-up awards organisers around the EU, by creating the StartUp Europe Awards Alliance, in which all the start-ups awards organisers will be included. For the moment, Zinc Shower is the first Spanish startup awards organiser joining the StartUp Europe Awards Alliance, and the Bank of Ireland StartUp Awards is the first British Member joining the Alliance. The latter has counted on Seán Kelly, MEP for Ireland as ambassador for the Bank of Ireland StartUp Awards in representation of the StartUp Europe Awards (video).

During our visit to Berlin, Finnova is also planning to meet some entrepreneurs located in Berlin, and Germany in general, to explain them the different ways to gain EU funding for their projects and also to offer them our help through the EU training platform and Startup Europe Accelerator, two programmes offered by the Foundation Finnova, the European Foundation for the innovation, and funded by the Spanish Ministry to increase entrepreneurship activity rate.
