VNO-NCW, the largest employers’ organisation of The Netherlands, has chosen Widget Brain as the New Hero because of its unique product offering, growth potential and scalable business model.
The New Heroes awards is an annual event organised by VNO-NCW that nominates companies to be the New Hero based on their impact on society, innovative character and financial stability. Widget Brain challenged the other finalists on these criteria, but the vision and role in the future ultimately became the deciding factor.
Maarten de Boo, managing director EMEA, got the honour to elaborate on that on behalf of Widget Brain. He explained our beliefs that AI will be everywhere in the near future and how our product The Algorithm Factory ensures that the transition to AI is done in a safe and transparent way.
The jury elaborated on that, calling it ‘AI for the masses’ and mentioned that our ‘impressive client portfolio’ and ‘unique business model’ were some of the other reasons for them to announce Widget Brain as the winner of the evening.
It was a successful and memorable award show and we would like to thank the jury and VNO-NCW for this honourable award. We are very proud to say that we are The New Hero of 2018!
