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 experience the world. With the 4th Industrial Revolution, businesses face mounting pressure to innovate and evolve, and as businesses take on the challenge to innovate, they in turn contribute to the economic strength and societal well-being of our nation.

 

To celebrate this excellence in Digital Innovation we present the 2019 BCX Digital Innovation Awards.
