Nominations open for the Top 100 Asian Stars in UK Tech 2020 - Banner

Now in its sixth year, nominations are now open for the Top 100 Asian Stars in UK Tech 2020 list, published by equality and inclusion charity Diversity UK, in association with New Asian Post Ltd.

The list celebrates the contribution made by British Asians to this country’s digital economy.

The Top 100 Asian Stars in UK Tech list will be published online on Thursday 4th June 2020 on the https://asiansintech.com website.

The aim is to showcase the wealth of talent on the British digital scene; from startup founders, creatives, social entrepreneurs, technologists, venture capital and angel investors to the policy makers and game changers. The key objective is to address the perceived lack of diversity in the tech sector by highlighting the business models, funding and support networks being created by these Asian digital entrepreneurs.

The Top Five categories for 2020 are:

  • Business  (incl. B2B, B2C, EdTech, FinTech, HealthTech, InsureTech, IoT, Proptech, Retail etc.)
  • Investors (including Accelerator, Incubator, Angel Investor, PE, Venture Capital)
  • StartUps (entrepreneurs who have set up in the past 5 years or so)
  • Sustainability (incl. CleanTech, Energy, Environmental, Social, RegTech & Governance models)*
  • Women

* This category changes each year. In previous years it has been EdTech, FinTech, Social Entrepreneurs,  Creative Industries and HealthTech.

Shortlisted nominees not only gain considerable media attention, they also make valuable connections to help fund or scale their business; are part of a network of innovators; can pitch their ventures at Tech Showcases; are recognised in industry publications and go on to win other competitions and awards. Last year, thirty of Britain’s leading Asian tech entrepreneurs were honoured with a ‘Pioneers Award’.
