Nomination Types

The biggest number of nominations were received for entrepreneurs from France (197), followed by United Kingdom (185) and Spain (129). 


During the application period we have been engaging with the european startup ecosystem online, and have received great results – Europioneers was mentioned over 1600 times and reached over 12 million people, thanks to the influencers, such as @digitalagendaeu, @eyif and @startupeu.

We’ve also looked at what topics were the most prominent on the social media during the application period, and it appears that calls to nominate and apply for the awards stand out among all others. The results are provided by the best social media monitoring and analysis tool on the market – Brandwatch.

With these great results we are ready to take off to the next stage of the process and allow you to influence who the next European Web Entrepreneurs are going to be!
