The German Founder’s Award is the most important award for outstanding founders in Germany with the aim of the promoting a positive start-up climate and to encourage entrepreneurship. The prize is awarded annually for the categories of pupils, start-up, rising star and lifetime achievement. Since 1997 this notable award has been offered by their partners Stern, Sparkasse, ZDF and Porsche. It is supported by a top-class board of trustees, sponsors and the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
Candidate companies are selected by a network of over 300 experts. These experts are distinguished by many years of experience with start-ups and by their excellent contacts in the entrepreneurial arena. Vectoflow GmbH was nominated by Rene Klein, CEO of Für-Gründer.de. He selected Vectoflow because he not only was impressed with their level of innovation, but that they were operating in the black during their second year and had reached an annual turnover of one million. He is sure that we will hear a lot more from Vectoflow and says that Germany needs more start-ups like this one. We want to thank him for his cooperation and nomination.
Für-Gründer.de is the leading online portal for entrepreneurs and business owners with extensive information and tips on starting a business.
As a finalist, we will receive individual coaching tailored to their needs from the consulting firm Porsche Consulting GmbH. In addition, members of the Board of Trustees of the German Founder's Prize will sponsor Vectoflow for a period of two years and provide guidance and know-how. We will also receive media training from ZDF and be granted access to the alumni network of the German Founders Award.
