About a month ago, the Belgian-American Chamber of Commerce (BelCham) invited us to participate in the 6th "BelCham Entrepreneurship Award" competition. The "BelCham Entrepreneurship Awards" honor both Belgian and American small and medium-size enterprises in the U.S. with powerful ventures, promising business plans or proven success stories. A high-profile jury selects entrepreneurs who have demonstrated market insight, ability to seize a unique opportunity and endurance in capturing a share of the U.S. market.
This week, we received a "Congratulations" mail:
This year's applicant pool was extremely competitive, and I am pleased to inform you that our panel of judges has selected your company as one of three finalists for the Most Promising Company Award. Congratulations!
In other words: iText will be in the top 3 in the category "Most Promising Company of the Year 2014"!
BelCham will make the final announcement on the night of its Annual Gala on October 8th.
