About us

You have a great idea? We have a great platform to show it!

Connecting, empowering and creating opportunities. These are the principles on which EuroAsian Startup Awards (EASA) is built. Covering eight countries - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russian Federation, Turkey and Ukraine -, EASAwards aims to find local industry game-changers, connect them to the global ecosystem and creates them opportunity to make their first steps towards international expansion. During this journey, startups can rely on a global network of experts, corporates, media and investors that are ready to help them along the way.

Our vision is simple. We want local innovative ideas to be validated on a global level, facilitate mutually beneficial cooperation among the global ecosystem stakeholders and put a greater emphasis on a region that is full of talent and undiscovered business opportunities.

How we do it?

EASA is part of the world’s largest no-pitch, no-conference startup competition, Global Startup Awards with partners like Google and Microsoft and with globally recognized industry experts and investors. Participating in the EASA competition as a startup, jury member, ambassador or advisor means that you are part of a global network that provides opportunity to grow your network, find talent and make the next steps toward global success.
