MY-HAMMER AG was voted the 3rd best company at the German Internet Prize in 2008. “It’s absolutely fantastic”, said Markus Berger-de León, CEO of MY-HAMMER AG “particularly for my colleagues who have worked so hard on improving the platform over the last few months. The prize is proof that we are moving in the right direction. However, it is also an incentive for us to improve further, particularly as we are now under scrutiny” said Markus Berger-de León.
The marketing director of the DATEV eG, Claus Fesel explained the reason for awarding 3rd place to MyHammer: “The Business model of MyHammer generates benefits for three different parties. First, the job poster finds suitable tradesmen or service providers quickly and usually saves a lot of money. Secondly, the tradesman can fill spare capacity as well as reach new customers. And last but not least, MyHammer itself creates an additional marketplace and thus new jobs.”
In total more than 300 enterprises from all branches had applied for the ninth edition of the German Internet Prize which awards innovative Internet applications every year. The prize for 3rd position was 15,000 euro. After the celebration of the award Markus Berger-de León stated: “We will invest our prize directly in the improvement of our platform. It is our philosophy that the users of MyHammer should profit directly from our innovative Internet application.”
