StartUp Europe Awards is a contest of contests, therefore, startups cannot apply directly for the European final of the StartUp Europe Awards without having contesting at previous levels.
If you want to have the possibility of becoming a European finalist for 2017 edition and so representing your country, you should contest first in your country in the SEUA17 call that will follow the general rules set that SEUA organisation. The conditions and requirements to apply depend on each country organisers, but winning a national contest will instantly mean that you are bound to the European final.
As different countries join the SEUA17 alliance, we will communicate the national calls in our website and social networks, so keep looking for it! For most countries, these national final ceremonies will be held between September and December 2017.
