[ Press Release ] 39 OUTSTANDING INNOVATIONS ANNOUNCED AS WINNERS AT THE INTERNATIONAL  INNOVATION AWARDS 2022

Enterprise Asia is pleased to confer the International Innovation Awards 2022 to 39 remarkable  innovations. As one of the pillar of the Innovation Revolution movement spearheaded by Enterprise  Asia since 2017, the award recognition program aims to create an innovation ecosystem for enterprises  which is held annually to recognize outstanding innovations across the globe. This year marks the 6th edition of the awards which took place in Bangkok, Thailand in which the Awards was officiated by the  Vice Minister for Commerce of Thailand Dr. Sansern Samalapa. 

This year’s winning innovations embody the true essence of innovation in accelerating growth and  efficiency and promoting inclusiveness, which aligns with the objective of the award recognition  program—to provide businesses a global platform to showcase their innovations that unlock doors to  a better and sustainable future and encourage organizations to continue investing in innovation. 

The awards drew an exceptional mix of submissions across 19 countries such as Brazil, Cambodia,  Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Israel, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, the  Philippines, United Arab Emirates, and United States. 39 innovations were selected and crowned  winners from over 200 applications through undergoing a rigorous evaluation process by a jury of  prominent judges across three categories: Product, Service & Solution and Organization & Culture. 

“We are facing a global crisis of dwindling resources. The expense of doing business rises with each  passing day. This is where innovation comes in: the ‘extraordinary forces’ that businesses can unleash.  Through innovation, we are not just protecting and extending our competitive edge but also future proofing our businesses in a time of volatility, uncertainty and increasing complexity.” Richard Tsang,  President of Enterprise Asia, stated in his welcome address.

The Road  Transport Authority of the United Arab Emirates also emerged as a winner under the Organization &  Culture Category with its RTA Innovation Culture Framework, which aims to make innovation an  everyday practice by experimenting with new approaches to enrich its innovation culture.  

Prior to the awards ceremony, the International Innovation Summit 2022 was held during the day.  Themed “Building Breakthroughs with People-first Innovation”, the Summit is a transformative program  featuring industry leaders from around the region and provides a platform to inspire important  conversations and shaping the agenda in building human-centric organizational strategies. 

Over 300 innovation experts, industry leaders, and policymakers across the globe gathered at the  summit to share and exchange the latest insights on adopting people-first cultures to reshape the world  of work and drive lifetime employability and sustainable economic growth. 

At the Summit’s opening, Enterprise Asia Chairman Dr. Fong Chan Onn expressed that “A crucial  element is often overshadowed as companies raced to make the next revolutionary breakthrough— People. Putting people first enables companies to develop adaptive capabilities and adopt agile and  innovative ways of working in order to evolve and future-proof their organizations.
