The Higher School of Economics’ Business Incubator is encouraging start-ups to participate in this year’s Start-Up of the Year Award competition. It is also a good venue for investors, sector experts, media and potential partners and customers to make themselves available.

The Business Incubator, Russian Venture Company and the Moscow Government’s Department for Entrepreneurship award the Start-Up of the Year prize on an annual basis to start-ups that Russia’s business community considers best.

This year, the Award goes to four nominations:

The Best Technology – a start-up that has built its business on a most promising technology;
Discovery of the Year/A Quick Start – a start-up set up this year and showing most dynamic growth;
A Global Start-Up – a start-up operating in international markets;
The Best Social Focus – companies working to address socially significant problems.

On top of that, the Incubator and Internet recruiting agency Pruffi are also awarding The Best Team of the Year prize.

How to get the Start-Up of the Year Award?

Stage 1: Start-Up of the Year’s Partners name what they think are the best start-ups. The Partners include innovation infrastructure organizations that support entrepreneurship such as business incubators, business clubs, scientific parks, business schools, etc. You can approach any Partner before November 6 and apply for any of the four main nominations that you choose. Please surf the official Award website for a full list of Partners and the criteria for start-ups.

Stage 2: a jury that includes investment funds, PE, successful entrepreneurs and a corporate community names three best start-ups in each nomination. Those selected and nominated for 2011’s Start-Up of the Year will be known on November 24.
