The Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards is the region's most prestigious awards for entrepreneurship and is held in 14 countries across Asia.

The Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards (APEA) is a regional recognition programme organised by Enterprise Asia, the region's leading association for entrepreneurship. The Awards are presented to a handful of entrepreneurs across Asia Pacific each year, with annual award ceremonies held in over fourteen countries.

The APEA is often compared to the Olympics for its stringent entry criteria and highly-competitive judging parameters. Nominations to the APEA itself is by invitation, either through past or current awardees, a supporting trade association or the executive committee of Enterprise Asia. Nominees are then subjected to a series of rigorous tests, which include financial verification by an appointed audit firm and a compulsory physical site audit and interview, culminating with a confidential balloting process by an independent judging panel.

Awardees are expected to be torchbearers of entrepreneurship and business leaders in their respective countries, while adhering to strict standards of personal and business ethics. 

"We can say with certainty that the recipients of the APEA are like no other. Not only do they have to prove their entrepreneurial skills and experience in one of the toughest contests in the world, they also subject themselves to a pledge to uphold the highest standards of entrepreneurship, which includes allegiance to the two founding pillars of Enterprise Asia, namely Investment in People and Responsible Entrepreneurship", says William Ng, president of Enterprise Asia.

Among the recipients were Rahul Bajaj of Bajaj Auto Ltd, who received the 'Lifetime Achievement Award', and Malvinder Mohan Singh of Fortis Healthcare Limited, who was named the 'Entrepreneur of the Year' award, and V. Vaidyanathan of Capital First Limited who received the APEA in the 'Outstanding' category.

"I'm honoured and delighted to receive the award in the 'Outstanding' Category at the Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards 2016 India. This is a recognition not only for me and my colleagues at Capital First, but also for the amazing opportunities India provides to emerging entrepreneurs through an enabling ecosystem", said Mr. V. Vaidyanathan, Chairman of Capital First Limited.

The recipients in India were selected from among 150 shortlisted candidates, ranging from talented young entrepreneurs to experienced industrialists.

Beyond recognizing the efforts of these entrepreneurs, we hope to encourage them to continue taking their businesses to the next level, and in the process, provide more job opportunities to the people in the region and help to drive the economy forward."
