SINGAPORE, August 10, 2021
UnaBiz was selected by the editors of Forbes Asia as one of the companies included in the inaugural Forbes Asia 100 to Watch list. From underwater drones to satellite propulsion systems and everything in between, the latest watch list spotlights notable small companies and startups on the rise across the Asia-Pacific region. At a time when economies worldwide are struggling from the pandemic, these agile companies are on a growth path.
Companies featured on the list are making remarkable progress and impact in spite of the challenging climate brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Their inclusion in the list comes in part from addressing problems such as improving transportation in congested cities, expanding affordable connectivity in remote regions and preventing food waste.
17 countries and territories are represented. Top categories include biotechnology & healthcare, e-commerce & retail, food & hospitality and education & recruitment. The lively startup communities in India and Singapore produced 22 and 19 companies, respectively. Hong Kong has 10 and Indonesia eight. Mainland China has just four, as many candidates were above the required maximums for revenues or funding. The final 100 companies were selected from a pool of close to 1000 submissions.
