To mark its 20th anniversary, EuroCham wants to celebrate the success of European companies and their contribution to growth, living standards and innovation in Vietnam. The EuroCham Business Awards 2018 will recognise the achievements of European companies in 5 categories: Business Excellence, Entrepreneurship, Alumni, Start-Up and Sustainability. The winners will be selected by an independent panel of judges composed by experienced professionals from diverse fields (see who they are below).

Business Excellence

(Nominated by Business Associations)

This award recognises the business that has shown long-term growth and success, been a model of responsible and profitable business and made a real contribution to Vietnam over the last two decades.






Entrepreneurship

(Nominated by Business Associations)

This award recognises the business that has shown outstanding entrepreneurial qualities, such as being innovative, creative, disruptive and competitive, to overcome challenges and become successful in Vietnam.






Alumni

 Vietnamese students educated in Europe get more than a degree. These students also bring back new ideas, connections and practices that benefit business back home. This award recognises the person who has made the biggest contribution to Vietnam after being educated in Europe.






Start-Up

Vietnam is a magnet for start-up companies. This award recognises the most innovative, enterprising and forward-thinking new European companies.






Sustainability Initiatives:

Vietnam's economic growth has improved education, living standards and opportunities for millions. But it is now creating environmental problems that threaten the health of its people and the future of its natural environment. This award recognises the business that has done the most to adopt sustainable practices and reduce its environmental impact.
