Inaugurated in 1989 by the Rotary Club of Singapore, The Entrepreneur of the Year Award (EYA) is the oldest Award in Singapore that honours local entrepreneurs who have shown outstanding performance as business owners, be they emerging or established enterprises, in their respective industry fields. In 1992, the Rotary Club of Singapore invited the Association of Small & Medium Enterprises to co-organise the EYA.
Upholding the prestige of the Award, EYA prides itself for the high qualifying criteria, rigorous rounds of site visits and stringent judging processes.
Now in its 29th year, The Entrepreneur of the Year Award continues to build upon its legacy as one of Singapore’s most established business accolades where Top Entrepreneurs are showcased annually on a platform of national scale. The EYA is also an excellent opportunity to embark on a fulfilling and rewarding Award Journey that spurs business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs to aim higher and achieve greater victories in the business arena.
The Singapore Prestige Brand Award (SPBA) was inaugurated in 2002 by the Association of Small & Medium Enterprises (ASME) and Lianhe Zaobao. Today, SPBA continues to recognise and honour Singapore brands that have been developed and managed effectively through various branding initiatives.
With the increasing number of homegrown brands becoming established household names, achieving this esteemed mark of success is certainly a significant milestone in the branding journey of any local brand. The Award also serves as a yardstick for SMEs to benchmark their brand equity against their competitors.
Having established itself as a prestigious branding Award that local brand owners strive to attain, SPBA remains an effective platform for companies which aspire to become sterling brand names in Singapore to fuel their expansion plans abroad.
To meet the demands of the market, SPBA comprises six main Award Categories, namely SPBA – Micro Brands, SPBA – Promising Brands, SPBA – Established Brands, SPBA – Heritage Brands, SPBA – Regional Brands and SPBA – Special Merit.
