Shortlist for White Bull Summits’ 2017 Bully Awards announced

White Bull Summits, producers of Europe’s exclusive technology entrepreneur and investment summits, Pathways, has today announced the 60 finalists for this year’s Bully Awards, recognising outstanding European startups. The finalists were shortlisted based on excellence in product innovation, leadership and performance, growth and growth potential.

The winners of this year’s Bully Awards will be selected by a panel of high profile judges, including successful entrepreneurs, media and investors and will be announced at an awards ceremony at White Bull Summits’ seventh annual Pathways event in Barcelona on June 7th 2017. The finalists will also be given the opportunity to showcase their visions at the conference, which brings together top European entrepreneurs from all stages of business, with global investors and big brands. The two and a half day programme is designed to encourage meaningful engagement, while opening European innovation up to a global playing field.

Elizabeth Perry, Co-founder and Creative Director of White Bull Summits, said: “Once again we’ve been delighted with the standard of entries and overwhelming interest to this year’s Bully Awards. Our 2017 finalists emphasise the huge amount of entrepreneurial talent coming out of Europe, and it’s even more exciting to witness a new evolution of technology businesses step into the spotlight year-on-year.

“Three-quarters of the companies that have been through Pathways have gone on to be more successful. They’ve forged partnerships, completed acquisitions and raised billions of dollars in funding. We look forward to building on this success in 2017, welcoming back those that have already benefitted from the community and showcasing the emerging talents that can help spur on Europe’s innovation scene.”
