On November 7, MoneyGram will host their first European awards to honour foreign entrepreneurs in Brussels. These entrepreneurs will be awarded to those supporting local economies and reinforcing integration in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK.
All companies will be nominated through an online voting system. After an online voting session of four weeks, an international jury will shortlist nine entrepreneurs, three for each category from each country. The prizes are divided in three categories- innovation, profit growth, and social responsibility.
The entrepreneur who will excel in all the above mentioned three categories will be awarded with the prize for the European Foreign Entrepreneur of the year 2019. The award winners of each country will be invited to Brussels to participate in the final event and gala night and one of them will also be awarded the ‘Immigrant Entrepreneur of the Year’.
The MoneyGram Award was established in Italy in 2009, and it is the only national award that recognises the excellence of companies run by foreign entrepreneurs. The European MoneyGram Awards is a recognition project that represents the commitment to migrant communities living and working across Europe.
