ABOUT THE AWARDS

 

Some startups are sleek and flashy. Others are quieter, solving behind-the-scenes problems that may never occur to the everyday consumer. Some are racing ahead of the competition, and others are trying to level the playing field. In spite of their differences, they all bring innovation, creativity, and dynamism to the table, making Asia a better place.

In recognition of incredible ventures and amazing adventurers, the Jumpstart Awards 2019 turns the spotlight on fresh businesses in the Asia-Pacific region, acknowledging their past achievements, highlighting future potential and celebrating their current success!
