29 winners across three categories: Product, Service & Solution and Organisation & Culture were selected from 120 submissions across the globe after a rigorous review process by a panel of eminent judges, with scoring done using the Awards’ proprietary 8-D Benchmark.

The International Innovation Awards is a part of Enterprise Asia’s #innorev – a global movement to mobilise innovation to serve humanity and drive long-term value creation in businesses.

This year’s judging panel comprises of Martin Daffner, founder of Innobrix, Philippe De Ridder, founder and CEO of Board of Innovation, Professor Wonjoon Kim of Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Makoto Shibata, head of FINOLAB and former head of global innovation of Bank of Tokyo – Mitsubishi UFJ, Professor Nadia Thalmann of Nanyang Technological University, and Professor Natcha Thawesaengskulthai of Chulalongkorn University.

"The pandemic is a stark reminder that the only way forward for humanity lies in innovations. Standing still is not an option. If businesses have been wondering if they should put more resources into R&D and in enabling innovations – the pandemic has given all of us a resounding answer", said Richard Tsang, president of Enterprise Asia.

"Innovation is no longer a luxury or an optional function within organisations. For businesses to survive and thrive, innovation must form part of our organisational DNA. This is critical to allow businesses to adapt quickly, future proof themselves and remain relevant regardless of the uncertainty and complexity of the marketplace", Tsang added.
