Ever wondered what a voting system like the one used by the Eurovision contest could do for startups? The victory of Kalush Orchestra from Ukraine this year shows such a system could be a game changer for startups at the leading edge of innovation. While there is no Eurovision Startup contest, Dealflow.eu‘s Innovation Radar Prize comes very close to making it happen. You can vote for the Innovation Radar Prize here.
