Romanian Startup Awards by TNW & Geekcelerator
In Romania, The Next Web partnered with Geekcelerator and they are bringing the Romanian Startup Awards in Bucharest, on Februrary 5th. The awards will be handed out by Patrick de Laive, TNW co-founder and Geekcelerator. Winners will be getting tickets to TNW Europe Conference in Amsterdam in April 2013.
“Startups have always played an important role in TNW events – each year we welcome many promising young companies to our conferences. It’s great to finally meet those startups in their own tech hub as we move through Europe to celebrate entrepreneurship. With TNW Romanian Startup Awards we’re looking for the best entrepreneurial minds of Romania and aiming to bring the tech scene together for a great night.” — Patrick de Laive – Co-founder of The Next Web
Quick round-up of how it works
Nominations for one of the following seven categories are gathered: Startup of the Year, Best (Co-) Founder, Best Web app, Best Mobile App, Best Design, Best User Experience and Best Investor. Three weeks after the opening of the nominations, the professional TNW Jury (aka Ziad M. Kane, CEO of TheNextWeb.com, TNW co-founder Patrick de Laive and editors Robin Wauters and Martin Bryant) will select max. 5 companies or people per category that will move on to the voting round. During the voting round, which lasts one week, anybody can vote for their favorites via the TNW social voting platform.
