The committee based its decisions on criteria including innovation, potential impact, working prototype, viability and leadership.

CoeLux® has been selected despite a relatively poor economic environment for start-ups in Italy and Europe. Furthermore, Italy came 127th in the latest Forum ranking for venture-capital availability, behind all other major European countries.

This environment makes it harder for European technology companies to catch up with their American peers, says Michael Drexler, Head of Investors Industries at the World Economic Forum. “Venture capital plays a crucial role in creating and developing young, innovative companies. The European countries that lack this funding mechanism will find it more difficult to create the jobs needed for a sustainable economic growth trajectory.”
Past recipients include Google (2001), Wikimedia (2007), Mozilla (2007), Kickstarter (2011) and Dropbox (2011).
