There are still a few days left to vote for BionIT Labs in the Global Startup Awards, the world’s largest international startup contest. The final awarding event will be held live on January 27th and the online participation is open to all!
During BionIT Labs ’ growth, contests have always been a good opportunity for promotion, a way to deal with other realities, involved, like us, in the development of technologies and innovation.
We have always taken these opportunities and for this reason we are truly proud to take part in a world event of this level.
The European stage of the South Europe Startup Awards
About a year ago we won the South Europe Startup Awards in the “Best social impact” category, distinguishing ourselves among startups from France, Greece, Malta, Cyprus, Spain and Portugal.
Although coronavirus didn’t allow the SESA regional award ceremony to be held, scheduled for February in Turin, the event’s management organized a grand finale of digital awards to decree the winners.
Public and qualified jury’s vote allowed us to continue our international experience in the contest, aspiring today to the Global Startup Awards.
The idea of dealing with the international panorama of innovation and business makes us grateful, and we feel that it can represent another opportunity for growth. With innovation and a clear vision we are confident that we can shape our future and the future of the society where we live. In fact it’s thanks to technology, considered as a tool, that it is possible to contribute in creating a fairer world. How does the contest work?
A step back: the contest stages
The entire program, which starts from the national phase and will end with the Global Startup Award, is divided into 4 different phases. So far, the first three phases took place:
- In a first phase we were chosen among the 3 Italian startups finalists in the “Best Social Impact Startup” Category.
- In the second phase, the jury’s vote joined the online vote, declaring us absolute winners of the national phase. The winning startups in Spain, Malta, Greece, France, Cyprus and Portugal were decreed in the same way.
- In the third phase, the regional one, we “challenged” these other Countries, according to the same methods of public and jury voting, and we won as Best Social Impact startup, ready for the Global Startup Awards.
- We are now taking part in the global “People’s Choice – Startup” category, which will end on January 27th with the Global Grand Finale, where the world winners of the categories will be announced.
