Who will win the 2017 Start-Up Of The Year award?

Nominations for the 25th edition of the Entrepreneur and Start-up Of The Year awards are now closed. Verlingue cordially invites you to the regional award ceremonies next September, and in October to find out who is the 2017 overall winner.


The Entrepreneur and Start-Up Of The Year programme is organised by EY in partnership with Verlingue, HSBC and Steelcase, with the support of Bpifrance and media support from Les Echos, L’Express and Widoobiz. The programme puts the spotlight on the men and women fashioning today’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.


The winner of the 2017 Start-Up Of The Year award will, in particular, follow on from Scality, the 2015 winner. Scality specialises in object and cloud storage and is considered to be one of Europe’s future unicorns. It raised $45m in 2015. In total, this French corporation, which also operates in the USA, has already raised $90m since its creation in 2009 and aims to go public in 2017.
