Register now for the Horticultural Entrepreneur's Prize 201717 June 2016
Are you an innovative entrepreneur with daring, decisiveness and a focus on sustainability? Then register now for the Horticultural Entrepreneur's Prize 2017.
If you are a horticultural entrepreneur working in one of the following fields, then you are eligible for nomination:
- Sales of flowers
- Treatment of flowers
- Flower bulbs
- Cultivating flowers
- Cross-breeding flowers
- Propagating flowers
The size of your company is not important. For the first time, suppliers and consultancies can no longer compete because the jury is focussing on companies where green thumbs go hand in hand with growth and flourishing of the company.
Winner of 2016
Competing in the Horticultural Entrepreneur's Prize is certainly worthwhile. The winner receives a lot of publicity, as well as a valuable work of art. The recognition and enlargement of their network are additional rewards that do not have a monetary value.
Toon Ebben from Boomkwekerij Ebben in Cuijk, the winner of 2016, confirms this. "The Horticultural Entrepreneur's Prize brought us so much in just a few months. There was great recognition from the sector. The award represents reliability, and that puts us in a special position. Our international growth ambitions have accelerated, everything is easier."
The deadline for registration is Friday, 16 September 2016. An expert jury will announce the four nominated companies at the end of October. And during the festive New Year's event on 11 January 2017, it will become clear who is taking the prize home.
The Horticultural Entrepreneur's Prize is supported by: GroentenFruit Huis, Flynth, Interpolis, HPP Exhibitions, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Rabobank, trade magazine for florists: The Tree Nursery and Royal FloraHolland.
