Yesterday (10/10), Goodget was presented with the Sustainable Hero Award 2013 in the Rotterdam office of Ernst&Young.
The jury, led by former prime minister of The Netherlands Jan Peter Balkenende, choose Goodget as the winner from 5 nominated companies. The other nominees were: African Clean Energy, MUD Jeans, AIMforthemoon, and Greenclouds.
The jury praised Goodget for its inclusive, well thought through business model, the way local entrepreneurs can benefit, and the social aspect of bringing sustainable, life improving products to the people who can best use them in developing countries.
We are really pleased to receive the Sustainable Hero Award 2013, and the prize that comes with it: 5.000 Euro worth of advice from Ernst&Young. This will help us one step further in bringing sustainable products to underserved markets!
