So, the shortest month of the year has come and gone. And what wonderful start-ups we have had. The editors chose four week winners from the twenty cool startups, out of which you may now select the winner of the month. And later this year (drum roll) … but that won’t be for a while.

February’s nominees hail from The Netherlands, Germany and Austria. Are you working at a pretty cool start-up that hasn’t already taken part? Then sign up via our form. Links to the articles with the contenders are listed below the poll. You have until Friday to vote.
