Last week Hans Brouwer (right) from MassiveMusic won the Amsterdam Business Award 2011. Brouwer was nominated together with Duncan Stutterheim (middle) from ID&T (a music and entertainment company that among other things has franchised the Sensation White dance event in 17 different countries), and CEO Bert van der Leden (left) from IQCreative (a company that exploits the international Supperclub restaurant formula, as well as several other restaurants in Amsterdam, like Envy, Vyne, Nevy and Nomads). Brouwer and his MassiveMusic received the highest ratings in categories like strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship, and sustainability. This photo was taken during a special award ceremony dinner at Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam. MassiveMusic is one of the world leaders in music composition and production, with offices in New York, Shanghai, Los Angeles, and Amsterdam. According to the company it publishes more than fifty music composers for commercials, Idents, TV promo’s, and console games, on a daily basis. But Brouwer gives Amsterdam more than digestible advertising tunes; he’s also the founder of the ‘Club of 12’, a group of creative ambassadors that aim to make the Amsterdam creative industry thrive and internationally visible. So we’re pretty sure Brouwer will use his prize money, €25,000, in a creative way.
