Vestd recognised by The Europas Tech Startup Awards 2021

We’re excited to announce that Vestd has been longlisted for Hottest B2B/SaaS Startup 2021 by The Europas, the top awards for Europe’s most ambitious and innovative startups.

It’s an honour to be recognised by The Europas as one of Europe’s hottest tech startups. For those not familiar, The Europas are a celebration of talent emerging from Europe's burgeoning tech startup scene. 

TechCrunch editor Mike Butcher launched the prestigious awards in 2009. Over the years, The Europas have identified Europe’s most successful startups, including household names Deliveroo, Spotify, Transferwise and Soundcloud. 

Award categories include B2B, cyber-tech, e-commerce, health, social innovation and many more, shining a light on tech-savvy startups that address relevant, urgent, large-scale, global issues.

Determined not to be beaten by the Coronavirus pandemic, The Europas Awards 2020 took place online, and it’s the same again this year. We’ve got 24 June 2021 pencilled in the diary when we hope to win the coveted title, Hottest B2B/SaaS Startup. 

Vestd is a progressive startup comprised of a diverse and talented team. Together, we built the UK’s first, most advanced and only regulated share scheme platform for SMEs. In doing so, we’ve helped thousands of entrepreneurs to figure out how to use equity to grow and reward their teams.

Vestd’s founder Ifty Nasir said: 

“The Europas are a benchmark of quality within our industry. Our inclusion on the list is a real achievement for the whole company. It’s fantastic to be listed alongside some of the best and brightest startups from across the continent. Being recognised by The Europas is a real endorsement of what we are doing, and I couldn’t be prouder of the team.”

We’re up against 10 other worthy competitors in our category, Hottest B2B/SaaS Startup. And the next stage is a public vote. So if you love Vestd and what we do, then please vote for us. Voting closes 12 May 2021 at 23:59 BST.
