Medipee managing director is awarded Moerser entrepreneur of the year 2020
The Moers CDU’s Medium-sized Business and Economic Union awards the prize “Entrepreneur of the Year” in retrospect of the past year. The award for 2020 should take place in November this year. Unfortunately, the Corona pandemic prevented the already planned event from taking place.
Moers Entrepreneur of the Year is Frank Willems, managing director of the medical start-up “Medipee”. The award will be made up for next year, if the corona conditions allow it again.
The invention of a world first, a patent-protected innovative procedure for automatic urine analysis and the untiring further research activity in the field of medical technology characterise the constantly growing company.
High-tech start-ups like this company are often based in Silicon Valley in the USA, but Medipee has deliberately chosen the Lower Rhine region. In the long term, the company wants to establish itself at the Moers location, create jobs and also provide training in various areas.
The chairman of MIT, Noel Schäfer, justifies the decision of the Moers CDU’s Medium-Sized Business and Economic Union to award the prize to the company with the fact that courageous people are taking an entrepreneurial risk here in order to contribute to the further development of the health system, are committed to Moers as a location and work in a future-oriented manner with a constantly growing team.
