About the AWARDS

At BCX, we innovate for how people live, learn, and work because we believe that digital innovation is key to how people today experience the world. With the Fourth Industrial Revolution, businesses face mounting pressure to innovate and evolve. As they take on the challenge to embrace digitalisation, enterprises in turn contribute to the economic strength of the country, and ultimately to the upliftment of our citizens.

To celebrate this excellence in Digital Innovation we have introduced the BCX Digital Innovation Awards.

The types of innovations that EXCITE US

We are looking for two kinds of innovations: Incremental Innovations and Disruptive Innovations.

An incremental innovation is one that continually focusses on making existing products or services more competitive, through cost reductions, improvements, or the addition of features. This kind of innovation uses current or new technologies within an existing market and aims to increase value for customers through enhancements or simplifications. 

The second kind of innovation is disruptive innovation, which creates a new market, for a new group of customers. It uses new technologies in new or existing business models.
