StartupAwards.Sk loves innovation and every year celebrates the merger of ingenious minds with business acumen. During the first half-decade of its existence, has evolved into the foremost startup competition recognized throughout the Slovak society and abroad, broadcasted by national TV channel and supported by Slovak president Andrej Kiska.

The top 20 startups attended preparatory Bootcamp, a three-day long session taking place on 6–8 November, where they got tons of mentoring and training from successful entrepreneurs and VCs from the CE region. At the end of the Bootcamp, a 12-member jury selected the top 12 companies that will present on stage at grand finale in Bratislava and compete to become the best Slovak startup of the year and win a number of prizes to foster their business.
