Flower startup Bloomon wins Startup Deal of the Year

Flower subscription startup Bloomon has closed the ‘Dutch Startup Deal of the Year.’ The jury of the Vectrix-NextStage election chose the service out of three finalists during a grand finale on Thursday afternoon in Amsterdam.

Bloomon was awarded 1.500 euro, that can be spend on one of the business trips the organisation hosts.

The company, not even a year old,  recently announced an investment (series A) of 3.5 million euro led by Dutch INKEF Capital. Bloomon is fastly expanding in Europe. “I am not waiting on anyone”, said co-founder Patrick Hurenkamp to StartupJuncture earlier.

The list for best Dutch startup deals of 2015/2016 was narrowed down to three companies earlier this week: Bloomon, BUX and StuDocu.

The jury, including Edwin Hengstmengel (Endeit Capital) Michel Simons (NextStage, Early Stage Fund) Johan van Mil, partner Peak Capital and Ton van ‘t Noordende (Keadyn), looked at funding deals of startups no older than three years that raised money between April 2015 and March 2016.

The startups were judged on the amount of money raised, the background of the team and investors and growth potential.

Last year, 3D printing service 3DHubs was closed the Dutch startup deal of the year.

Other shortlisted companies included:
