Enschede, The Netherlands, 29 April 2010 – Recore Systems has received the Van den Kroonenberg Prize for young entrepreneurship. The award is presented annually to innovative entrepreneurs at the close of the University of Twente Innovation Lecture.
The prize was awarded to Recore’s founders: Paul Heysters, Lodewijk Smit and Gerard Rauwerda. The company was founded as a spin-off of the University of Twente in 2005. Since then, the company has been growing healthily and developed innovative products based on scientific knowledge.
