Bringing Home The Gold! DECENT Wins 2 Awards at the Central European Startup Awards (Slovakia Region)

September 29, 2017

DECENT brought home 2 awards from the Slovak National, 4th Annual Central European Startup Awards (CESA) on Thursday, September 21st, 2017. We are proud to announce that we won 1st prize in both the Best Newcomer award and the Startup of the Year award which was the most prestigious of the night!

Huge congratulations to our entire team, who have been working around the clock on all facets of DECENT. These awards commemorate all of our hard work and dedication to this project, which wouldn’t exist without each and every one of our contributions.


CESA is a series of events in the CEE countries, to acknowledge and celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit and startup ecosystems of this colourful and diverse region. We competed against startup companies from all over Slovakia and took home the gold in both categories we were nominated for.

The award ceremony recognized us for our adaptable, purpose-based blockchain system designed for seamless integration for companies and developers with a focus on purchasing and selling digital goods and our proprietary project DECENT GO, a blockchain based google play-like marketplace for all digital goods.

As the Slovak National Winner of 2017, we automatically advance to the CESA Grand Finale, which will take place on the 23rd of November in Sofia-Bulgaria. DECENT will represent the whole of Slovakia and will be competing against the likes of Symvaroand Timeular from Austria; and UiPath and TypingDNA from Romania. Others will be added to the list of companies considered as the regional awards are decided.

In the end, finalists from 10 countries will go head to head for the chance at being named Central Europe’s Best startup company in their respective category. Public voting will be open on the 4th of October. So gather your friends and followers and make some noise for your favourite startup, DECENT!
