THE PREMIER REGIONAL AWARDS FOR SMEs
Since 2009, the SME100® has served as the pinnacle of trust and benchmark of reliability among business owners. Independently verified and data driven, SME100® is an assurance to potential partners, investors and customers that your company has achieved a level of success beyond the ordinary.
The Awards identify and recognise SMEs based on a basket of quantitative and qualitative criteria with a focus on growth (turnover, profit and market share) and resilience (best practices, sustainability and vision).
More than an award, SME100® is a powerful learning and business development platform. Through our extensive university-level classes, enrichment seminars, workshops and forums - SME owners and key personnel up-skill themselves with the latest know-how and intelligence. Our annual ASEAN Business Accelerator and multi-country programs serve to accelerate your growth - putting you in touch with people and organisations that matter.
Awardees are also featured in a Special Edition of the SME Magazine and other supporting online and print media. They also participate in other programs under the SME100® Framework™.
