Women Entrepreneur Awards 2019
It was a celebration of the brightest stars amongst female entrepreneurs in Singapore and Asia at the Women Entrepreneur Awards (WEA) last month. Inaugurated in 2016, the fourth edition of the business award honoured the accomplishments of 12 outstanding women this year, shortlisted from more than 50 nominees.
The honourees included Stellar Category Most Promising Entrepreneur Award recipient Lena Tang, CEO of E Capital Limousine, as well as executive creative director of Simone Jewels, Simone Ng, who was the Pulsar category winner.
“Endurance and perseverance is key to entrepreneurship. Challenges are common, so it is important to stay motivated and determined. Don’t let complacency set in, but look beyond and envision how to bring your business to a higher level,” said Lena.
The prestigious SuperNova award went to executive chairman of Tecity Group and The Straits Trading Company Limited Chew Gek Khim, who is credited for diversifying the family business and bringing it to greater heights.
