Ictoria door naar finale Ignite Award 2021
Press Release – Digital creative agency Ictoria from Boxmeer is one of the nominees for the Ignite Award 2021, a start-up award for social entrepreneurs from Gelderland and Noord-Brabant who come up with smart innovative solutions for social problems.
Ictoria, along with five other companies, was selected from over sixty entries. In the coming weeks they will work during an intensive training program to strengthen their business. On October 28, the professional jury will announce who will take home the prize worth € 100,000.
Digital creative agency Ictoria is a social enterprise with employees that have a ‘perceived’ distance to the job market because of a physical or mental challenge. The team delivers high quality products in the field of graphic design, web design and communication and marketing support for companies and the government.
Besides the Ignite Award 2021 there is also a award given by the public. The winner will receive €5000.
