My colleague Markus Larsson represented Acabo Games in Swedish largest entrepreneurship competition Business Challenge, for young entrepreneurs 18-30 years old. The mission of the organization is to get more young people to start and run their own business.
The main prize “the company of the year” was EUR 11 000 and went to a cool company called Housify (a social web-based music service allowing you to discover, stream and share electronic music), but thanks to Markus efforts in applying, Acabo Games won “Best Marketing”, and “Best Sales”, both winning money and a sales workshop with the professional Jonas Möller. YEEEY!!!!
I couldn’t believe my ears when I first heard about this, it was really cool to receive this prize – all our hard work during the last year payed off!
The event was held at the renowned Grand Hotel in Stockholm, and included a full day of exposition, pitching, networking, mingling, ending with a gala dinner at the beautiful hotel. I wish I could have been there with Markus…
