The Dun & Bradstreet Business Eminence Awards
Singapore's vibrant entrepreneurial spirit has always been a cornerstone to its success since its rise from a backwater city to a bustling first-world nation. The Business Eminence Awards is an initiative by Dun & Bradstreet Singapore to celebrate the nation's vibrant tradition of entrepreneurship, recognize and showcase the achievements of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) that are the critical cogs in shaping the business landscape in Singapore over the past year. First started by Dun & Bradstreet India in 1997, the Business Eminence Awards has provided a platform to celebrate the success stories of the key movers and shakers in the local business community from across all industry verticals. Adopting the best-in-class and globally-recognized methodologies, this award uses a proprietary financial model to assess and select the best performing business and helps raise the international profile of both promising and established enterprises of Singapore.
The Dun & Bradstreet Business Eminence Startup Awards is also established to identify the cream of the entrepreneurial crop in Singapore’s growing startup scene and seeks to recognize the spirit of innovation and creativity in today’s fast-paced business environment, especially in this age of business and technological disruptions. This Startup Awards category celebrates the rigours of entrepreneurship and provides inspiration to future promising entrepreneurs by examples of risk-taking, community mindedness and success.
