BOSW: Honorary award for Digitec founder

Best of Swiss Web, Europe's oldest web award, presents its 2015 Honorary Award to Digitec founders Marcel Dobler, Oliver Herren and Florian Teuteberg.

At the Best of Swiss Web Award Night on Thursday, March 26, 2015, in front of an audience of around 800 people at the Kongresshaus Zurich, not only will the best Internet and mobile projects in eleven categories be honored, but traditionally an honorary prize will also be awarded.

This year, the Honorary Award goes to Marcel Dobler, Oliver Herren and Florian Teuteberg, the three founders of Digitec. The Honorary Award Committee honors the three Digitec founders for their outstanding and innovative achievements in the Internet industry. With the foundation, the impressive build-up and the long-term securing of the most successful e-commerce start-up in Switzerland, they have set an entrepreneurial milestone in our country.
