The winners of The Europas were announced on the 17th of November 2011 and we are thrilled to announce that busuu.com won the category ‘Best Education, Recruitment, Media Startup’. This is fantastic news and we are honoured to be the best European Education Startup. This would not have been possible without you, a BIG thank you for all your support!
This was the third year that The Europas took place, in 2010 we received a ‘Highly Commended’ in the category ‘Best Learning Startup’. The advisory board, formed by 22 key European VCs and journalists, selected the finalists from 400 candidates which then went to the public vote and generated about 40,000 online votes. Almost 500 people attended the award ceremony in London to celebrate the best of Europe’s startups, VCs and entrepreneurs.
Thanks again for your votes and this important award! This is an amazing recognition which motivates us to continue working hard and to keep improving busuu.com!
