[learn_more caption=”The CES Awards”] The CES Awards is the biggest start-up competition of the Central and Easter European region and is held annually in one of the 10 countries (Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria). It is one of the Global Startup Awards, which are held in Europe and Asia.[/learn_more]
The main aim of the competition is to encourage the integration of the region’s start-ups to the international scene and to help establishing cooperation between the start-ups. Thus, 10 national rounds are held, with the regional main event, thereafter, which brings the participants of the start-up world together.
Therefore, the founders chose the strategy of announcing the winners of each category on the spot – similarly to the Oscars – at the Awards, so almost every nominated entry sends a representative to the events.
After revealing the winners, the main focus is on creating professional relationships and networks. The regional winners of each category are chosen from the national winners of the 10 countries by the regional jury of more than 50 members, who are globally acknowledged professionals.
The jury of this year’s Hungarian national round:
Some of this year’s regional winners will receive an invitation to participate at next year’s global final, the Global Startup Awards, to compete with the winners of other regions, and thus find the global victors of each category. The main event will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, on December 1.
