Startup Europe Awards


The cultural world is in continuous change, and after the 2008 crisis and the pandemic resulting from Covid-19, it is in a state of “trance” and constant search for new identities. In addition, finding a niche in the field of culture has become an odyssey in recent years, with unemployment in the field of the arts increasing by 22.39%.

Creative Startup Europe Awards rewards startups with the most original creative and cultural projects (visual arts, architecture, audiovisual production, literature, music, design and fashion) with the greatest capacity to transcend beyond Europe.


When it comes to cities, Europe has much to contribute. Its urban models have many flaws that need to be addressed, but they still come very close to the ideal of sustainable development. European urban models represent a middle ground between the unsustainable urban sprawl of American cities and the high population density of most Asian megacities.

Smart Cities Startup Europe Awards rewards the best startups working on projects related to smart city management. Topics of interest include, among others, planning, mobility, waste management, energy efficiency, water cycle and citizen participation.
