Fastest riser of 2021 within the MKB Data Science event
The ranking of SME companies was created by Florijnz Corporate Finance based on criteria such as growth in total assets and number of employees. The winner of the Data Science Award was chosen by a professional jury and public votes. The professional jury looked at presentation, impact, innovativeness and scalability. The public based its vote mainly on the pitch of Annemarie van Benthem. Van Benthem, manager of analytics & development: "We see three developments; there is more and more data, the technology is developing faster and faster and what you do with data must be explainable - the human aspect must always be taken into consideration. All of our 120 employees are experiencing these developments in their own way. And because we complement each other, we learn a lot from each other, develop new ideas and remain creative. Which we  use to support and advise our customers."
