Award winners

Closure wins Innovator Award

Closure digitally supports relatives in canceling subscriptions, contracts and accounts of the deceased. The moment a person dies, it is probably the last thing relatives want to think about. Closure takes that job off your hands! Closure understands how tiresome it is to inform all organizations 1 by 1 about the death of a loved one. That is why you only provide the data once via Closure and select the relevant organizations. After that you can manage all cancellations and acquisitions in one overview.

Circal Technologies wins Rough Diamond Award

Circal Technologies has developed a system that converts harmful emissions from container ships into algae. The algae can be used as a component of medicines or animal feed, for the production of bioplastics or as biomass.
