    Organised by Official AuditorCo-Organizer Supporting Organisation Credit Bureau for the Award

  • SME100 Awards is the premier regional awards for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). 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).

    Awardees are also featured in a Special Edition of the SME magazine and other supporting publications and participate in other programmes under the SME100 Framework.

    SME100 Awards is the highest accolade for an SME to aspire for!



    SME100 winners are entitled to use the SME100 logo in all their corporate collaterals and websites. Being an SME100 company is a powerful statement of your achievements and build confidence among current and prospective clients, employees and vendors.

    As many of the winners are of a size and presence that pre-qualifies them for public listing, the SME100 is also positioned as a prelude and stepping stone to an initial public offering.

    Equally important, we work with media partners to profile selected winners and the full list of winners are published in the media and official website to enable more prospective clients and business partners to identify you as a great company to work with.

    The survival and success of a

    business is dependent on how it can

    differentiate itself. So, differentiate yourself!

    - Michael Porter, World Guru of Strategy

    1. Am I guaranteed to win by submitting a Nomination? The SME100 system is designed to be both impartial and independent from external influences. As such, all Nominations will be weighed against the proprietary SME100 Methodology and are considered solely on the merits of the Nomination. Ultimately, the stringent criteria adopted ensure that if you are selected as a Winner, you know that it is because you qualified for it, and not because you have paid for the Nomination.

If you are announced as a Winner, you will be given the opportunity to partake in an optional marketing programme designed to maximise your exposure from the SME100 programme. The programme is optional and will not affect your chances of being selected as a Winner. Of course, you will only receive benefits tied to the marketing programme should you participate in them. Please speak to your Nomination Advisor should you need further clarification on this.
