Once a year, the Unternehmerverlag Südwestfalen awards the Südwestfalen Entrepreneur Prize. One category is „Founder of the Year”;. Last week the time had come and the award ceremony took place in the Schauburg in Iserlohn. Our managing director Dr. Alexander Hoffmann, as award-winning founder himself, was honoured to deliver the laudatio for the founder of the year 2018. Four companies with extraordinary ideas were nominated this year, but as is well known there is always only one winner and that is HAMBL GbR from Olpe this year. Four young people have set out to support young trainees in all areas with a mentoring programme. Training companies can instruct HAMBL to accompany their trainees during personality training and to support them as mentors at the start of their careers.
In his speech, Alexander Hoffmann found words that apply to all nominees: Founding needs courage and takes you far beyond your own comfort zone! With this he looks back on the path of statmath GmbH and can give the young founders advice from his own experience.
We wish the founders much success and above all an inspiring mentoring program, in which they may participate thanks to the founder price South Westphalia!
