Last Friday, the Entrepreneur of the Year Award (EYA) 2018 was officially launched at the Marina Mandarin. This marks the 30th year of the EYA award and also the inauguration of the EYA Alumni.
The EYA Alumni is an exclusive network for entrepreneurs who have persevered through and emerged victorious from the rigorous judging process of one of Singapore’s toughest and most rewarding entrepreneurial distinction awards. The Chairman of the EYA Alumni is Mr Lawrence Leow, former ASME president and Top Entrepreneur for EYA 2000.

Jointly organised by the Rotary Club of Singapore and the Association of Small & Medium Enterprises (ASME) the EYA seeks to acknowledge the accomplishments of local entrepreneurs and encourage entrepreneurship in Singapore.
The event featured a discussion panel comprising former EYA winners; Mr Thomas Fernandez, Mr Alan Tan, Mr Jovan Yap and Mr Sam Chee Keong.
