Transatlantic Business Award Program Continues to Strengthen Shared Transatlantic Prosperity
The American Chamber of Commerce Estonia (AmCham Estonia), U.S. Embassy Tallinn and the Baltic American Freedom Foundation (BAFF) are pleased to announce the launch of the second annual Transatlantic Business Awards program!
Dedicated to strengthening transatlantic economic ties and acknowledging outstanding and innovative achievements by Estonian-based companies and individuals in the U.S. market, this program builds upon the success of the previous awards series – Estonian American Innovation Award (2010-2015). Well-known previous winners include companies as ZeroTurnaround, GrabCad, Planet OS and Transferwise. Last year’s Tranatlantic Company of the Year, Testlio, was announced at the Transatlantic Business Conference 2017 in Tallinn. “The U.S. Embassy in Tallinn is delighted partner with AmCham and BAFF for the second year in a row on the Transatlantic Business Awards partnership,” said U.S. Chargé d’Affaires to Estonia Clifford G. Bond. “Recognizing companies and individuals that strengthen our shared transatlantic economic prosperity helps showcase the best that both Estonia and the U.S. have to offer, and we want to continue to highlight these innovative partnerships.”
On November 7, in Tallinn at the 2018 Transatlantic Business Awards, Cleveron was named the Transatlantic Company of the Year for its success of breaking through to the US market and establishing strong business relations with the world’s biggest retailer Walmart. READ MORE….
