Monday evening, November 18, 2019, the presentation of the Startersprijs Midden Twente 2019 took place during the busy Starters café in Schouwburg Hengelo. Starters from Borne, Hengelo and Hof van Twente that started in 2018 had a chance of winning this prize. Late in the evening the winner was announced after a long wait: Kidzstore from Hengelo! We were pleasantly surprised. A great reward for hard work, but also for our industry.
The jury praised Kidzstore. Both young men started a webshop in sustainable baby items last year, with the focus on washable diapers. They have now moved into a building in the center of Hengelo and have developed their own line of washable diapers. “The good starting situation, the rapid development and the financial perspective were decisive. Jeffrey and Ramon are very passionate and full of ideas for their product. For example, they would like to relieve parents and offer a subscription in which the used diapers are collected and washed. They want to invest the prize money in these plans, ”says Peter.
