The celebrated companies were chosen by a panel of independent judges including senior business leaders, politicians and academics as the best in 11 award categories, and they will now go on to represent their Germany in the final stage of the competition.

At the event, business leaders came together to celebrate and network with their peers after being successfully named as ‘Ones to Watch’ in a list of business excellence published in December, all hoping to be named National Winners.
