The EIT Awards 2013 are an event championing innovation and entrepreneurship in Europe that will be taking place on 12 November 2013 in Budapest, Hungary.
While the Venture Awards move into their second year, 2013 welcomes the new CH.A.N.G.E Awards, which have been launched to celebrate the young entrepreneurs of the future. Details of the nominees for both of these awards can be found here, and information about the judging panel here.
A key objective of the EIT is to support the creation of an entrepreneurial culture – both as a mind-set and as an activity. In order to support this objective, the EIT organises an annual award competition in collaboration with its three KICs – Climate-KIC, EIT ICT Labs and KIC InnoEnergy.
The EIT Awards will:
- showcase to the wider audience the potential and talent of young members of the EIT/KIC community and inspire them through role models.
- promote an entrepreneurial and innovation mind-set, a can-do spirit and a (calculated) risk-taking culture by putting the spotlight on KIC ventures and the Next Generation of Change Agents and Entrepreneurs;
- provide a platform for mutual inspiration and entrepreneurial opportunities;
We look forward to welcoming you at the EIT Awards 2013 in Budapest on 11 and 12 November!
