Eric Van der Kleij, Head of Level39, was keen to extol the values of this collaboration between a big player such as EY and seven ambitious startups.
“As the curtain raises on The EY StartUp Challenge, we all move closer to better understanding and responding to the critical issues brought about by ‘the right to be forgotten’. Each of the seven finalist companies deal with these challenges in different and innovative ways, and by working with an established firm such as EY, the growing companies will gain access to a treasure chest of contacts and resources that would have otherwise remained difficult to reach. Best of luck to all of the teams.”
