The fourth edition of the Women Entrepreneur Awards, which celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of women in Singapore and empowers female business owners in Asia, will take place in July 2020.
Details of the exact date and venue of the event, which is organised by S-Auxano Pte Ltd, are still in discussion, but D:CODE understands it will be a grand affair that will surpass previous editions in prestige and spectacle.
Past winners include executive chairperson of Octopus Group Dato’ Elaine Teh, Overall Winner in the Nova category (for businesses with revenue exceeding $10 million), Style Lease’s founder Ang Jin Yuan in the Stellar category (for startups with revenue not exceeding $1 million), Cheryl W Wellness & Weight Management’s founder Cheryl Wee in the Pulsar category (for businesses with revenue of between SGD $1 million and SGD $10 million) and senior vice president of Banyan Tree Holdings Ltd and co-founder of Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts for the Supernova category (awarded to 1 women entrepreneur with substantial achievements in the business and social category who is nominated by the judging panel).
There will be a new category in next year’s edition, called Woman of Asia, where female entrepreneurs based in and operating out of all Asian countries other than Singapore will be nominated by the judging panel. This will link the Singaporean female entrepreneurs to other successful Asian entrepreneurs, widening the network for growth and development of women entrepreneurs across geographical borders.
Nominations for this year’s awards in the various categories have begun and will end on February 7, 2020. If you’ve made an impact as an entrepreneur or know someone who has, you can make your nomination or submission. The award affords women the recognition and power to inspire future generations of entrepreneurs, while providing winners access to an exclusive club of successful entrepreneurs.
