Prominent entrepreneurs who have generously offered to mentor the winners include Fred Mouawad, Conor Bracken, Graham Brain, John Stevens and Michael Trocherie.

Respectively, Mr Mouawad is the Founder and CEO of Synergia One Group of Companies, which runs several industries including gems and jewellery retailing and others; Mr Bracken is CEO of Andovar, a global provider of multilingual content solutions such translation and audio and video recording.

Mr Brain is the owner of Obex, involved in manufacturing, barter trade exchange, restaurant franchising and others; John Stevens is Co-Founder & Managing Partner of Stonelotus Capital, which provides angel investment and strategic support to startups and early stage businesses in Southeast Asia; and Mr Trocherie is the owner of the Wine Connection chain of restaurants.

“For winners, it is a lifetime opportunity to meet one-on-one and be mentored by such leading entrepreneurs, who have all gone through the trials and tribulations of setting up, running and growing a business,” said Pacharee Pantoomano Pfirsch, Founder of BNOW.org and Chairwoman of ENA.

“I will be exchanging ideas about the future of the winner’s business to get an independent and unbiased view of their strategic options. Winners can ask me questions and share some of their existing challenges so that both of us can learn in the process,” said Mr Mouawad, an avid supporter of the awards.

“As a mentor, you not only give guidance and share your experience, but also get new insights about how people run their business. I look forward to a productive and rewarding session of sharing of knowledge, information and experiences,” added John Stevens.

Supported by Office of Small and Medium Enterprises Promotion (OSMEP) and several community and media partners, ENA’s objective is to promote entrepreneurism, attract investors to Thailand and the Asean region, and revitalise the Thai economy and the SME sector.

To create great exposure for the Awards, the partnership has been broadened to include several foreign Chambers of Commerce in Thailand and other players who support entrepreneurs in the market. Members of the working committee include the Thai-Italian Chamber of Commerce, the American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand (Amcham), the Irish Thai Chamber of Commerce, Bangkok University, Bangkok Entrepreneurs, Unesco, and the international internet-based market research firm Yougov.

The awards are open to entrepreneurs of all nationalities who have a registered business in Thailand (no subsidiary or branch office). They will be judged on: 1) uniqueness, 2) vision and potential growth, 3) value in Thailand and Asean, 4) eco-sustainability, 5) striking achievements, 6) overcoming challenges and 7) recognition and traction.

Applications for the awards are to be submitted through an online application along with a three-minute video by January 31, 2017.

A networking evening will be held early February 2017 for finalists to meet with judges and the award presentation will be held on February 22, 2017.

The online evaluation panel for judges is managed and monitored by BMRS Asia, a business and marketing research company.
