Emerse was honoured to be invited to the national grand final of the Entrepreneur of the Year award, Sweden 2016. (Årets Företagare Sverige). This annual gala is arranged by the Swedish Federation of Business Owners (Företagarna) and held at Stockholm City Hall in the famous Blue and Golden Halls, best known as the setting for the annual Nobel Prize banquet.
In common with the other twenty finalists, to qualify for the national final, Carl-Johan had won earlier rounds for both his local award (Lund) and regional award (Skåne). Ultimately Daniel Wellington (watches) was announced as the winner at this, the 31st national Entrepreneur award ceremony. “They are worthy winners and a really nice company,” said Carl- Johan Grund.
The award also celebrates the people behind the company’s success; the people who make the entrepreneurs work visible through their dedication and entrepreneur inspired work. All candidates are meticulously examined by the Federation’s co-operative partner UC (Upplysningscentralen), who ensure that stiff criteria are met. The Swedish Federation of Business Owners is the largest independent business organisation in Sweden, representing the interests of around 75,000 business owners.
It’s been a terrific journey and a real feather in Emerse’s cap.
