André Viana, founder of Motorline received the award and the recognition of the work that has been developed by the company from Barcelos, conquering a prominent place in the TOP 5 of the general category SME Heroes.
“We are very grateful to Yunit Consulting and sponsors for the initiative and congratulate all the entrepreneurs and companies that participated with their incredible stories of overcoming and determination. This recognition is only possible thanks to our team that every day makes it happen with professionalism and passion, to our customers and partners who continue to trust our work, and to each of the people who voted and believe in Motorline. Gratitude and pride is what we feel at this moment. Thank you very, very much.” – emphasizes André Viana, CEO and founder of Motorline.
In an edition that broke records, with about 100 applications and two new categories, Bernardo Maciel, CEO of Yunit Consulting, says in a press release “the innovation, the ability to adapt and to overcome present in all applications. It was an enormous satisfaction to get to know so many inspiring and winning stories of companies that reinvented themselves to overcome difficulties and continue on the path to growth.“
Launched in 2016, this Yunit Consulting initiative has been publicising and rewarding the best innovation and entrepreneurship stories in Portugal, often serving as a propeller for higher flights for companies with good ideas, but who lack the right support to turn them into reality.
