Hotelchamp Sprout Challenger of the Year 2016


We are proud to announce we won the prestigious title “Sprout Challenger of the Year 2016”.

Each year Sprout, a well-known Dutch magazine focusing on entrepreneurs, selects the 50 most innovative and disruptive companies in the Netherlands. Previous years successful companies like ‘Vakantieveilingen.nl’ and ‘Snappcar’ won this populair price. Sprout selects the winner by looking at who is disrupting its market most and who takes risks to reach their goal.

A personal invite from the jury
We have received many votes on social media, thanks for all the votes! We also received a personal invite from the jury to pitch on stage, as they saw Hotelchamp as a true disruptor of the travel industry.

We came, we saw, we conquered
CEO Kristian Valk delivered the perfect 3 min pitch and convinced the jury that Hotelchamp was the biggest disrupter of the finalists, as we disrupt the hotel industry by challenging giant booking engines like Booking.com. Winning this award brings us one step closer to restoring the balance in the hospitality industry.
