Genomtec was among the few companies chosen to take part in the finals of the fifteenth edition of the Lower Silesian Gryphon – Economic Award [Dolnośląski Gryf-Nagroda Gospodarcza] organized by entities such as the Western Chamber of Economy – Employers and Entrepreneurs [Zachodnia Izba Gospodarcza – Pracodawcy i Przedsiębiorcy], Employers’ Organization of Polish Copper [Związek Pracodawców Polska Miedź], the Marshal Office of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship [Urząd Marszałkowski Województwa Dolnośląskiego], and Polish Employers [Pracodawcy RP].
We were nominated in the “Startup of the Year” category – one meant for start-ups (companies which have been on the market for less than 2 years) which managed to commercialize their products. The jury of the competition rewards companies which have an edge over the competition on the market thanks to their on-point original solutions, which create new market niches, or which make use of niches which have been neglected by others. Correct identification of non-standard market needs which the company satisfies in the course of its business activity and understanding of the impact its business has on its environment are appreciated. The company recognised as the Startup of the Year should also demonstrate its ability to procure and manage resources.
More than 1350 companies and local governments from the Lower Silesia region have taken part in the Lower Silesian Gryphon competition since its first edition in 2014. They were thoroughly examined by the jury. Over the course of fourteen editions, the main prize went to 76 companies, 22 local governments, and 10 people from the Lower Silesia region.
The results will be announced during a Grand Business Gala on 22 October 2018.
Keep your fingers crossed for us!
