The Enterprise 50 Awards entered its 25th run in 2019, a long way to come for an annual award that celebrates the best of Singapore's privately held firms.

To date, more than 600 companies have been recognised at the E50 Awards. Several have graduated to become global firms, with a market presence in various parts of the world.

To mark the milestone, a Digital Economy award was introduced to give recognition to a firm that displays the potential to be a billion-dollar company. This was one of the three "special recognition" awards presented at the E50 Gala Dinner held at Resorts World Sentosa on Nov 26, 2019. The other two special recognition awards were "Special Recognition - Internationalisation" and "Special Recognition - Enterprise Transformation" awards.

The E50 Awards 2019 is jointly organised by The Business Times and KPMG in Singapore, sponsored by OCBC Bank and supported by Enterprise Singapore, Singapore Business Federation and Singapore Exchange. In this space, we feature some of the moments at the E50 Gala Dinner.
