In November 2022, Elodie Zwart had the honor to win the beautiful prize of €2500 to further invest in her company Live & Connect. During the global entrepreneurship week, she had the opportunity to take part of the Dragons Chapel and pitch her product and vision against 6 other promising start ups, in front of a jury of investors. It means a lot to get this recognition from the business field and big players as Starterslift Investments B.V. & Bright Move B.V.
Inspired by cultures and multicultural connection, the work of Elodie Zwart got selected by KOP during the Now Sow of St Joost in July. After pitching her project against 2 other talents, Elodie won and got the opportunity to develop her project for the Municipality of Breda. This project has been launched at the Amphia Hospital Breda (March ’22) to stimulate and create a more hospitable city Breda.
Design student Elodie Zwart, who graduated in July ’22 from the study New Design & Attitudes, has been announced as winner of the Atelierprijs Breda 2022-2023. The municipality of Breda annually makes this prize available to the most enterprising student of St. Joost School of Art & Design Breda. The winner may use a guest studio at Electron for a year and will receive guidance as a starting entrepreneur. This gives her the opportunity to develop further as an artist or designer. Breda wants to use the Atelierprijs to encourage young, promising artists to commit themselves to Breda.
