52 innovative organizations being accorded the International Innovation Awards 2021

Enterprise Asia is pleased to honor 52 award recipients at the International Innovation Awards 2021. Spearheading the Innovation Revolution, the International Innovation Awards, which aims to create an innovation ecosystem for enterprises, is held annually to recognize outstanding innovations across the globe.

The 2021 Global Innovation Index has shown that in spite of the massive impact of the pandemic, many companies have shown remarkable resilience — especially those that have embraced digitalization, technology and innovation. It has shown that the spending growth of R&D in 2019 at 8.5% has successfully contributed to the global innovation ecosystem building on pre-crisis performance in 2020.

This year’s awardees demonstrated the role of innovation in accelerating growth, efficiency and inclusiveness which is in line with the objective of the award recognition program. The awards not only provide a global platform for enterprises to showcase their innovations but also encourage organizations to continue investing in innovation to pave the path towards a better and sustainable future.

The award drew an exceptional mix of submissions from various industries and countries such as Brazil, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, United Kingdom, the United States of America. 52 emerged as victors from the 260 applications through undergoing a rigorous evaluation process by a jury of prominent judges across three categories: Product, Service & Solution, and Organization & Culture.

“To best prepare our organizations for IR 4.0, we must inculcate greater innovation within our organizations. We must empower our people to constantly innovate and build a culture of innovation within our respective companies. Institutionalize it, so that innovation becomes all-permeating within our organizations rather than a job function or reaction to market forces. Hence, the key is not just changing the way we do business but changing our mindset as well,” Richard Tsang, president of Enterprise Asia, stated in his welcome address.

Among the notable recipients of the ‘InnoCube’ under the Product Category include CYBERDYNE, Inc. from Japan with its Wearable Cyborg HAL, the world’s first wearable cyborg that uses brain waves to command movements, and E.SUN Commercial Bank, Ltd. from Taiwan with E.SUN Smart FX Service, which is a comprehensive FX service with anti-fraud functions embedded in its transactions.

Esteemed winners under the Service & Solution Category are SHOPLINE from Taiwan with SHOPLINE Social Commerce, a full-featured platform that tailors all-in-one commerce solutions for every business type, and Ambiq from United States of America with its Ultra-low Power Processor Solutions for IoT Endpoint Devices, which is the most energy-efficient sensor processing solution in the market.

Prominent awardees under the Organization & Culture Category include Dubai Police with Dubai Police Next 50 Innovation Hub, a transformation initiative to redesign the Dubai Police innovation ecosystem, and Sofokus from Finland with Better Monday(R), which is an organism management system that measures employee happiness in the workplace to achieve a happiness-oriented company culture.

Prior to the International Innovation Awards, the International Innovation Summit 2021 was held during the day. Themed “Unleash Your Organization’s Superpower Innovation,” the virtual summit aimed to encourage organizations to tap into their inner innovation powers to innovate in a way that is profitable, creates value and captures customers’ interests.

Over 300 innovation experts, industry leaders and policy makers across the globe gathered at the summit to share and exchange the latest insights on conquering uncertainties and exploring the unknown for organizations to innovate, grow, and evolve.

At the Summit’s opening, Enterprise Asia Chairman Dr. Fong Chan Onn expressed that “Organizations must be courageous to explore the uncertainty to innovate and create. As our journeys grow and evolve, so must our ideas. Improving the ability to innovate has become vital to keeping up with the times.”

Among the keynote speakers is Josemaria Siota, executive director of IESE Business School, who covered the topic of “Corporate-startup innovations in deep tech: Challenges, Opportunities, and Trends.” Mr. Siota shared invaluable insights on establishing a start-up mindset and culture to develop new technologies and offerings and keep organizations on the right track.

Other speakers include Alexey Semeney, CEO & founder, DevTeam.Space; Andy Chun, regional director & Technology Innovation of Prudential Corporation Asia; Akina Ho, head of Digital Transformation and Innovation at Great Eagle HK; Praveen Lala, global director of Delivery, Process, and Operations of GE Digital; Raushida Vasaiwala, general manager of APAC at Celtra; Makoto Shibata, head of FINOLAB & Chief Community Officer of FINOLAB INC.; Guy Parsonage, partner & Experience Consulting leader of PwC Experience Centre, Hong Kong; Ivana Bartoletti, Global Data Privacy officer of Wipro and founder of Women Leading in AI network; William De Vos, managing director APAC of Board Of Innovation; Dr. Geoffrey Yuen, chief scientist at Parallel Chain; with Gary Ng, co-founder & CEO at viAct, and Martin Daffner, founder & Innovation architect and Corporate Innovation coach of INNOBRIX, as the moderators.
