This month we were invited by the Lower Austrian Federal Economic Chamber to their 2020 New Year’s Welcome as a VIP company for having received the Born Global Champion award in 2019. The event took place in the impressive Palais Niederösterreich in Vienna. We were excited to meet other prize winning and successful Austrian companies at the event and to be given a traditional token of luck for the New Year by the Austrian chimney sweepers. 2020 definitely will be a good year now.
Some of the cornerstone initiatives that were highlighted for the success of the Austrian business economy included innovative apprenticeship schemes and those supporting a cleaner environment, such as innovations for renewable energies.
The event also reminded us that we are already at the beginning of the 5th year of Anco being in business. As they say, time flies when you are having a good time. We have come a long way since the beginning of an idea. Last year in April we were awarded for Born Global Champion, which already marked many budding business relationships and partnerships on a global level. Fast forwarding 9 months on from that we can say that what was budding before has really started to blossom and new Anco buds appeared on the global map.
We would like to thank everybody that has supported us to get where we are today and hope that over the coming years of the new decade, we can celebrate new milestones, enjoy our current friendships and build new ones around the world.
