Award success for female founders

This year’s EUTOP50 female founder winners were revealed last month during the annual European Innovation Summit organised by Knowledge4Innovation.

“This year’s EUTOP50 finalists are among the most exciting entrepreneurs working in Europe today. We need more women like the finalists, who can inspire others to follow in their footsteps,” said Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth. “The finalists are living proof that with self-confidence we can do anything. I am inspired by their stories, which have given me the energy to work even harder to empower women in Europe and beyond.”
