Labster is thrilled to announce that Labster Founder and CEO, Mads Tvillinggaard Bonde, is the inaugural winner of Innovationsfonden’s 2017 Innovator of the Year award.
“Winning the Innovator of the Year prize from the Innovation Fund (Innovationsfonden) makes me humbled and proud,” says Labster CEO and Founder Mads T. Bonde. “A key part of Labster’s journey has been applying advanced research to develop better education, and the Fund’s support for Labster and our partner universities has been critical to our mission to empower the next generation of scientists.“
The Innovation Fund works with and develops many innovative ideas and companies throughout Denmark, and for Mads to be recognized as the first recipient of the award makes all of us here at Labster extremely proud.
Innovation Fund Director, Peter Høngaard Andersen, has stated that: “Better utilization of our research requires investment in it, which no one has yet created. And this is the Innovation Fund’s focus. Therefore, I am pleased that our prizes go to the people and projects that promote business and who affect our society and the way we live.”
