Medipee Managing Director becomes Moers Entrepreneur of the Year 2020
The Mittelstands- und Wirtschaftsunion of the CDU Moers awards the prize “Entrepreneur of the Year” in retrospect of the past year. So the award for 2020 should take place in November of 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 honor will be made up again next year, if the corona conditions allow it again.
The invention of a world first, a patent-protected innovative method for automatic urinalysis and the tireless further research activity in the field of medical technology characterize the constantly growing company.
High-tech startups like this company are often based in Silicon Valley in the USA, but Medipee has deliberately chosen the Lower Rhine. In the long term, the company wants to establish itself at the Moers location, create jobs and also train in various areas.
The chairman of MIT, Noel Schäfer, justifies the decision of the Mittelstands- und Wirtschaftsunion of the CDU Moers to award the prize to the company with the fact that courageous people take an entrepreneurial risk here in order to make contributions to the further development of the health system, commit themselves to the location Moers and work with a constantly growing team in a future-oriented manner.
