German term or phrase:Frischkopp
OK, folks. I have a PR piece and it appears that this is some sort of award given for business people in Schleswig-Holstein. Is it just "Frischkopf" in the local dialect? Here is the sentence:
Frischköppe sind Unternehmerinnen und Unternehmer in Schlewsig-Holstein, die nicht nur ihr eigenes Unternehmen mit frischen Ideen voranbringen, sondern dadurch auch zur Wettbewerbsfähigkeit des Landes beitragen.
Wondering if there are any other connotations to this term in S-H.
Explanation: I'd imagine the original term was FISCHkopp as a derogatory term for the people of SH (like Käsekopf for the Dutch), and that this similar term was later adopted to refer to people with bright ideas.
