Benjamin Ong, CEO of Alliance 21 in Singapore awarded Entrepreneur of the Year
2nd October 2012


G1LN would like to share the attached article in which Benjamin Ong. CEO of Alliance 21 our member for Singapore was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year 2012.

 

The Entrepreneur of the Year Award is a prestigious annual award organized by the Association of Small and Medium Enterprises to recognize and honor the Top Entrepreneurs in Singapore.  The Top Entrepreneurs are shortlisted and picked based on their qualities of enterprise, innovation, use of information and technology to enhance their business and social contribution the community they serve in.

Benjamin was asked to participate in the EYA by a casual business associate whom he had met at a meeting on several occasions.  Obviously someone acknowledged the innate qualities he had.

 

There was much hesitation but he finally succumbed.  Alliance 21 has always been a very humble company basking in her own success without much fanfare.  So it was no surprise that such a high profile event was not readily embraced.

The hesitation was not of lack of confidence nor fear of not winning.  It was purely a consideration of humility.  However, coupled with the significance of a 10th Anniversary and the curiosity of what lies ahead for Alliance 21 in the next decade, he decided to benchmark himself to the business community.

Benjamin has journeyed through a number of elimination rounds to emerge the top 13 finalists.

Winning this prestigious accolade has certainly taken Alliance 21 to another new high.
