HISTORY OF SME100™ AWARDS

Since its inception in 2009, SME100™  Awards Malaysia has surveyed over 8,200 nominees to sought out the fastest moving business within the SME sector. Driven by the initial objective of deriving a differentiating factor among the sector, the award has now come to be recognised as a prestigious benchmark attracting the attention of investors and clients, domestic and overseas.

Independently researched, ranked and published by SME Magazine, SME100™ ranks the top 100 fast moving companies in selected countries in Asia based on both quantitative and qualitative criteria. Progressing upon the need to establish a systematic and impartial scoring system, the award has since then partnered with Cheng & Co as the official auditing form to demarcate eligible winners. Questionnaires/participation forms were sent to 5,000 pre-selected SMEs in each country based on a proportionate representation of the 20 industry grouping using SME100™ Scorecard.

JUDGING BENCHMARKS

Both quantitative and qualitative benchmarks are employed to determine the winners and their rankings within the list.
