The VBHC Dragon 2019

The Value-Based Dragons’ Grant & Endorsement 2019 took place on April 17th at Buitenplaats Amerongen in Amerongen. Four very promosing initiatives of both the Grant and Endorsement category represented their initiatives to an international jury of experts with different backgrounds. In the first round the nominees had the opportunity to be consulted on pressing issues by the Dragons’ Den members that are most relevant to their initiative. Hereafter, the contestants processed newly gained insights into their pitch before they took the stage and started to pitch their initiatives to the jury.

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

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