The BEGO Group of companies from Bremen, Germany, has announced that they are included in the 29th annual TOP 100 competition, having been awarded the TOP 100 2022 seal.
At the heart of the TOP 100 innovation competition is a scientific selection process that participants must undergo. On behalf of compamedia, a media organisation based in Germany, the organiser of the competition, innovation researcher Nikolaus Franke, and his team examined the BEGO Group on the basis of more than 100 indicators from five categories: “Top Management Promoting Innovation”, “Innovation Climate”, “Innovative Processes and Organisation”, “External Orientation/Open Innovation” and “Innovation Success”.
“How focused is a company on innovation? How consistently do its structures follow this goal? With TOP 100, we examine this,” explained Franke. “The most innovative medium-sized companies receive the seal. It shows that they are excellently equipped to meet future challenges.”
On 24 Jun 2022, BEGO will be honoured for these achievements in person by the competition’s mentor, science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar.
