All 10 nominees were announced at the Kunsthal Rotterdam last Wednesday. We had some great feedback on Spark’s presentation:
"This potential winner of the ‘New Heroes 2015’ prize is a great innovation ambassador, not only for VNO-NCW Rotterdam, but also for the Dutch economy. [Spark] is an example of entrepreneurship, risk-taking and persistence - an icon for start-ups, innovators and students."
Throughout the year, all the nominees will have to make a presentation to the jury. The best 3 will be selected for the finals. The winner, chosen by the jury composed of CEOs and top managers, headed by Diederik van Dommelen, will be announced on 8 December.
