ScanTrust wins two awards at EY Startup Challenge

23.10.2015 09:25

Ten succesful tech startups from all over Europe were selected for this year’s Startup Challenge. The program culminated in an intensive 'Showcase Day'. ScanTrust has won the “Best Product Award” and the "Most Innovative Startup Award" at the event.

The EY Startup Challenge provides a mentoring and growth environment for startups, who receive mentorship from both senior EY specialists and EY clients. The objective is to collaboratively explore and validate different applications for the startups’ technologies. These applications are "use-cases" with strong business value that address a clear business problem. In parallel, the programme also provides a series of educational workshops, such as “effective product marketing” and “business model design”, delivered by both EY and external professionals, many of whom have extensive experience working with startups or are entrepreneurs themselves.

10 successful tech startups have successfully completed the second EY Startup Challenge held this summer. The challenge culminated in an intensive 'Showcase Day', with the Startup cohort pitching to an audience of investors, prospective clients and other Startups. The cohort endured challenging questions from a lively audience during the fully interactive event, and the audience live-tweeted and voted across three categories for every Startups pitch. The audience chose ScanTrust as winner of the “Best Product” and the "Most Innovative Startup" category.
