CHILI Publish awarded “Most Promising Young Company in Belgium”

CHILI Publish, the creator of powerful online document editing software, is awarded by UNIZO as Belgium’s “Most Promising SMB” in a highly competitive national competition. CHILI Publish was one of five regional finalists selected for this prestigious honor, and the finalist in the competition, with recognition that was awarded last Friday on Belgium’s National Entrepreneur Day. UNIZO is a Belgian advocacy group dedicated to protecting the interests of entrepreneurs, sole proprietors and professionals in all fields and at all socio-economic levels in the Flemish Region, at the federal level and in the European Union.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be the recipient of this important recognition,” comments Bram Verniest, COO of CHILI Publish. “The award is especially exciting in light of the fact that we don’t manufacture a hard goods product, raw materials or machines. Software manufacturing requires the collaboration of a lot of smart, passionate people, and the UNIZO award recognizes those smart and hard-working people that make up the CHILI Publish team. My hearty congratulations go out to my colleagues at CHILI Publish whose passion and dedication made this national recognition possible.”
