White Bull Summit 2012: Celebrating European Innovation in Technology, Media, & Telecommunications

The White Bull Summit 2012, Pathways to Exit event, taking place 1-3 October in Barcelona, will focus on European Innovation in the Technology, Media, and Telecommunications (TMT) sector. This year's summit will explore the business lifecycle, and the various “Pathways” from Startup to Exit, assembling some of the brightest stars in the Industry. Attendees will hear from the Global leaders, the investors, the visionaries, and the brave pathfinders who help define innovation. There will be the chance to exchange ideas, critique, get to know other attendees, and do business.

The final night will see the awards ceremony for the Bully Awards 2012, recognizing 30 private firms who have demonstrated excellence and growth potential in the European TMT sector.

The sixty finalists for the Bully Awards were announced last week. Thirteen Swedish companies topped the list, followed by Finland with seven finalists, and Denmark, the United Kingdom and Spain, each with six companies represented as finalists. The deserving finalists were selected from a pool of entries that included hundreds of nominated European TMT companies. A complete list of the 2012 White Bull Summits Bully Award finalists may be viewed here. 

“We’re pleased to announce the finalists for the 2012 Bully Awards honouring Europe’s elite TMT companies. This year’s finalists were selected on the basis of excellence in innovation, the promise of growth, and the potential to weather the changes and challenges inherent in the TMT sector,” said Farley Duvall, Founder and CEO of White Bull Summits. “The Nordic applicants were incredibly strong this year - a clear indication of the kind of innovation coming out of the region.”

The finalists fall into three categories:

  • Yearlings: firms that seek or have received angel/seed rounds or equivalent; classic start-ups
  • Young Bulls: firms that seek or have received Series A financing; early stage companies
  • Longhorns: post Series A firms; growth stage companies

“We’re searching for the ‘wily beast’ at the heart of each firm, and have carefully selected this year’s finalists based on business proposition, market strategy, technological solutions and understanding of customer needs,” added Duvall.

Thirty winners (ten winners per category) will be announced live at the summit.
