STARTUP AWARDS 2016 was new and better in many ways.

For the first time, it was a whole day event enriched with a CONVERSATION part, with 9 amazing speakers from around the world and with diverse background. The new format of the event, this time held in retro communist-modern Istropolis, has attracted almost twice as many attendees as in previous years.

The traditional evening COMPETITION part was opened by President Andrej Kiska, our long time supporter, and closed by Uri Levine, the founder of world-known Waze app. Out of 12 competing startups, AgentBalance won Digital category, Maguss has become a winner of Art & Design and Stemi dominated in category of Social startups. MultiplexDX, promising better diagnostics of cancer, convinced the jury in the Science category and also became the absolute winner.

As every year, attention and hard work of attendees and startups was rewarded by a CELEBRATION - the famous SASK afterparty.
