China Technology Excellence Awards 2021 is now accepting nominations

Deadline for submission of entries is on 25 June 2021.

The new year ushers in a new era for Chinese innovation, with technology and digital transformation taking centre stage in the country during the pandemic. And whilst many countries struggle amidst a downturn economy, the country's innovative streak shifted its 6.8% recession at the start of 2020 to a solid 2.3% gain by the end of the year.

If the COVID-19 pandemic has put global technology at the forefront of crisis response, then China should be right there in front, heading the pack.

Following the success of the inaugural awards in 2020, Hong Kong Business is on the lookout for outstanding companies that have made excellent contributions in the pursuit of cutting-edge technology.

The awards programme will crown top-tier firms with the most innovative and unique IT initiatives and solutions, driving business growth and pushing the boundaries of technology in China.

Last year's event was graced by reputable enterprises such as Datasite (Fintech - Financial Services), Home Credit ( Digital - Financial Services), J.D. Power (Digital - Consulting), and LinkedIn China (Online Services - Internet/New Media).

"We are very excited, and we are very honoured at the same time. It's good feedback to us that we've been delivering good service and good products to the market," said Toto Ku, Head of Greater China for Datasite.

Datasite is a leading SaaS-based technology provider for the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) industry. It won the most coveted Fintech - Financial Services trophy in last year's China Technology Excellence Awards.

"We are investing in China. We believe China is going to be one of our very big drivers in the coming years. With our coming innovations, we have so much in the pipeline. We are so excited to continuously share our new visions and functions and how mergers and acquisition are going to be carried out," he added.

The deadline for submissions is on 25 June 2021.

Nomination is free of charge, and the deadline for submission of entries is on 25 June 2021.
