The word is out, as Jouk Pleiter wins the LOEY Award 2017 with his digital engagement banking software company Backbase. Initially, he was a co-founder of Tridion, a software developer for content management. In 2003, however, he saw opportunities in a new market and therefore founded Backbase. While the company is now a market leader of digital engagement banking software for financial organizations, it has now won the LOEY Award 2017.
The best entrepreneurs of the industry
Pleiter’s win was announced this Monday by the chairmen of the jury, Daniel Ropers. 250 of the best online entrepreneurs were present at the event. A special guest was also present, namely queen Maxima, as she is a member of the Dutch committee of Entrepreneurship & Financing. The LOEY Awards are an independent institution awarding the best entrepreneurs in the Dutch online industry. Successful entrepreneurs will get visibility because of LOEY, while extending online initiatives and partnerships even further.
