EuroAsian Startup Awards: Connecting East with West
After last years success of reaching 3000 ecosystem players, MeOut Group is organizing EuroAsian Startup Awards (EASA) for the second time with the brave aim to connect talented startuppers and businesses from nine countries – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Russian Federation, Turkey, and Ukraine – to the global ecosystem. This year, the organizers focus on startups in digital transformation and AI. In 2020 EASA will be organized online.
A global platform for great ideas!
The competition aims to provide a platform for local startups to present and validate their ideas on an international scale. The overall process of the competition is based on three stages, from national up to the regional and global levels.
“This year we will have a condensed number of categories. Last year, we had 20 and this year we will have 10 amazing. In this way, we can focus better on certain aspects and give more relevance to those that have more business potential in the regional and the global ecosystem.” – Attila Sándor, the Founder of the MeOut Group said about this year’s change.
The two categories, The Master of AI and The Digital Transformers were created by MeOut Group, with the aim of putting the spotlight on talents who are not afraid to use new technologies and who create innovative solutions. The most promising innovative companies from the region could move up into the global final, where they compete with the world’s next future shapers.
