Von Gahlen nominated for ‘Koning Willem I Prijs'
In 1958 the Dutch National Bank and the Ministry of Economic Affairs decided to start biannually awarding outstanding entrepreneurship in The Netherlands. This award is called the Koning Willem I Prijs (King William I Award). A highly prestigious distinction for Dutch SME’s (Small and Medium sized Enterprises). We are very proud that Von Gahlen is nominated one of the twelve contenders for the 2020 edition.
Every region in the Netherlands (North, South, East and West) represents three nominees. These companies are selected based on strong entrepreneurship, vigor, courage, innovation power, durability, vitality and social involvement. Von Gahlen is one of the three nominees from the East.
To the final?
The organizing committee, in which Queen Máxima of The Netherlands is the honorary president, will select three finalists out of the twelve nominees. These finalists will attend a festive award show in May 2020. Obviously, we are excited to be one of the twelve contenders. However, we will be even more thrilled if we make it to the final. We will keep you posted as soon as we hear more.
