Google, McKinsey and Rocket Internet have joined forces to create the Digital Top 50 Awards to reward and celebrate the bold and trailblazing work of tomorrow’s top entrepreneurs.
The Digital Top 50 Awards recognise the top entrepreneurial talent in Europe, based on the following five categories: B2B Start-ups, B2C Start-ups, B2B Scale-ups, B2C Scale-ups, and Tech for Social Impact Companies. Participants will have their companies and ideas reviewed by a jury of key figures in the European tech, consulting, academic, corporate, and investment communities.
The awards will be under the patronage of Mr Carlos Moedas, Member of the European Commission, and the winners will be announced at TOA Berlin 2018 conference. We are also grateful for INSEAD's, Ashoka's and TOA's support as partners of the awards.
The Digital Top 50 Awards have been designed to recognise and reward bold talent, cutting-edge innovation and sharp business acumen.
Applications are open to Start-Ups and Scale-Ups from within the European Union and EFTA countries.
All applications must be received by April 1st 2018.

Europe’s tech scene is growing fast - we see more and more entrepreneurs building great companies. We want to share our experience and support these talents in order to scale their businesses. The Digital Top 50 Awards are a great chance for companies to raise money but also to get access to a large network of experience and industry relevant-contacts.
Entrepreneurial talent is a key source driving digitization in Europe. We need great talents that further accelerate the disruption of nearly all business models. McKinsey aims to support you strategy-wise and provide intense consulting and coaching together with our Digital McKinsey unit. In addition, we will connect you with leading industry experts and corporates, because it is time to make something big out of your idea and your talent!
One of the really remarkable things about digital technology is that anyone with a great idea can use the power of the web to invent the future and launch the next big thing. But the journey for entrepreneurs is hard. Many don’t know where to start and where to find help. We want to help even more European entrepreneurs grow & scale their ideas into exciting new businesses. This is for everyone.
