Since 2003 the Hessian Founders Award has been awarded. The Hessian Founders Award is awarded to start-ups and company successors from and in Hesse.
On the occasion of the presentation of the Hessian Founders Award 2019 in Wetzlar (Germany), the Hessian Founders Award also presented the new Cup on November 1st, 2019.
Instead of the previously awarded glass panel, a new Cup was designed by WOA. The Cup, which consists of two levels, is intended to symbolise the solidarity of the awarded founder or successor with the State of Hesse.
