honestbee’s Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Joel Sng, will also be featured in an industry presentation on e-commerce in Asia panel within the conference.

“honestbee is honoured to be recognised amongst our startup peers in Southeast Asia. This win is a true testament to the hard work everyone in the hive has invested, from the on-ground shoppers, delivery crew to the management team. Since our launch in Singapore in July 2015, we have rapidly expanded to seven other countries across Asia and extended our delivery services to include food, laundry, home & auto, health & on-demand courier services and our newest endeavour, honestbee GoodShip. With Southeast Asia evolving rapidly as the tech region of the world, we can only imagine the greater things that will come our way in the years to come,” said Joel Sng.



The winner was selected by an expert judging panel which includes the likes of Patrick Grove (Co-founder & Group CEO, Catcha Group), Chin Chao (CEO, Southeast Asia - Innoven Capital) and David Gowdey (Managing Partner, Jungle Ventures). The winner was selected based on a stringent criterion including: Year-On-Year business growth in revenue, active users, market expansion and company valuation, its innovative technology and services adds value to users and its ability to compete with other companies whilst continuing to grow in the respective vertical.
