The VBHC Dragon 2019

The Value-Based Dragon’s Grant & Endorsement 2019 will take place on April 17th on Buitenplaats Amerongen in Amerongen. Here four very promosing initiatives of each category will be representing their initiatives to an international jury of experts from different backgrounds. In the first round the nominees will have the opportunity to be consulted on pressing issues by the Dragon’s Den members that are most relevant to their initiative. Hereafter, the contestants are able to process newly gained insights into their pitch before they take the stage and start to compete against each other.

The winner of the Dragon’s Endorsement receives an acknowledgement letter and document signed by the VBHC Dragon’s Den. Furthermore their initiative will be endorsed and communicated in the upcoming years as a high potential, breakthrough initiative.

The Dragon’s Grant winner receives support and advice in upscaling worthy of €10.000,-. Moreover, the winner is able to pitch their initiative during the VBHC Prize on April 18th and benefit from all media attention and communication surrounding the event. This way, they build up momentum and we create traction for their initiative.
