It is a valuable reward for a company when all the hard work over the years gets recognition as the prestigious “Entrepreneur of the Year 2018” award for the country’s most successful micro and small business entrepreneurs.  

For us, as “Piksel,” it is an honor that we won the second award at such a prestigious event in the category of small enterprises.

How we got here?

The pre-selection for “Entrepreneur of the Year 2018” was made based on the data from the Central Registry of the Republic of Macedonia. From 2015 to 2017, 112 micro and small enterprises met the selection criteria through growth in the number of employees, total revenues, profits, and investments. The best entrepreneurs entered the selection process by filling in a questionnaire, field visit, analysis, and evaluation according to predetermined criteria (commitment to training, marketing and growth strategy, investment in equipment and research, development and innovation, etc.).
