Startups Hall of Fame 2020

In the past few years, there has been a growing number of novel biotechnology projects in Southeastern Europe (SEE) while the ongoing pandemic has made the need for significant innovation in the healthcare sector more obvious than ever. Therefore, we seek to identify and tell the stories of the most promising biotech, healthcare, medtech, and life sciences ventures in the region.

Trending Topics is a community-based media featuring the new economy and its leaders in SEE. The idea to have a tech and business media dedicated to our region has been around for quite a while. The media landscape has lacked sustainable coverage of the Southeastern European digital ecosystem. So the international audience and also investors have been missing the chance to learn about exciting new companies and entrepreneurs. And we decided to start here and expand regionally to give the visibility, the new economic wave in SEE deserves.

Startup Hall of Fame

All presenting startups will be streamed live on the channels of Trending Topics, gaining exposure infront of a wide audience from across Central and South Eastern Europe. All startups will receive exposure to a range of industry experts and venture capital investors taking part in the joury.

The top 3 finalists will receive dedicated materials on Trending Topics.

NBLO will offer free 1-hour legal consulting for the top 3 finalists.
