The Europas - Cast your votes!

"The Europas", the tech award that was brought into being by TechCrunch UK's Mike Butcher (profile, Twitter account), is getting a lot of attention in the tech world at the moment. The award, which "honors the best tech companies and startups across the web and mobile scene from across Europe, the Middle East and Africa", will be presented in a big ceremony on July 9 in London.

I'm delighted that two of "my" companies (i.e. startups where I'm an investor and active advisor) have been nominated in the Best Enterprise / B2B Startup category – congrats to Mikkel and the team at Zendesk and Ed and his team at FreeAgent Central.

If you're a happy Zendesk or FreeAgent Central customer or partner (or if you just want to do me a favour :-) ), please go ahead and vote for us. There's no registration required so it's really quick and easy to cast your vote. The voting deadline closes today at 23:59 GMT so you'll have to hurry up a little.

By the way, I am also nominated in the "Best Investor Personality" category. Most of the other investors on that list have a lot more experience than I and have helped many more startups succeed than I, but if you still want to vote for me, here's the link. :-)
