The World Summit Awards is a UN based international competition which aims to select and promote the world’s best startup companies in digital content and innovative applications. It is my great pleasure to announce this year’s winners from Finland to compete at the UN based World Summit Awards, the global Digital Startup competition.
The national competition took place between 1st June – 31st August 2018. We were honored to receive many high quality applications for the national competition.
