Our managing directors Thomas Gaus and Christian Gnädig could unwrap the award today. 

TOP 100 Preis


As you can see, the joy is great and both say a big thank you to all employees at our four locations.

An official award ceremony will take place in Weimar at the end of June, which we will report on again.

What is TOP 100?
TOP 100 is the only innovation competition in Germany that honors a company's innovation management and innovation success.
TOP 100 does not award prizes for individual products, but looks at all stages of the innovation process.

How does the TOP 100 selection process work?
M&M succeeded in a scientifically independent benchmarking process. We completed a standardized questionnaire developed and evaluated by Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke and his team. Prof. Franke is the scientific director of TOP 100 and head of the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. He is considered one of the world's leading innovation researchers.

What exactly does TOP 100 examine?
The innovation potential of companies is measured in five categories:
- Innovation success
- Innovation climate
- Innovative processes and organization
- Outward Orientation/Open Innovation
- Innovation-friendly top management
