The world’s preferred credentialing company made its presence felt yet again at the Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards 2018. Rajiv Gupta, President and Group CEO, added yet another laurel to his already impressive wreath – the Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Award in the hotly contested Professional and Business Services segment, a shining example of outstanding leadership and entrepreneurial excellence.

The award ceremony, held at the grand JW Marriot Hotel in the Indian capital, Delhi, earlier this month on April 13, 2018, saw the attendance of several luminaries, including the Minister of State for External Affairs of India, General V K Singh; Dr. Fong Chan Onn, the chairman of Enterprise Asia and former Minister of Human Resources of Malaysia, and Mr. William NG, President of Enterprise Asia.

Rajiv Gupta, awarded in the Professional and Business Services category, stood his own ground against some of the biggest and most respected names in Indian commerce and industry. Rajiv is not new to winning awards, being one of the global pioneers of the credentialing industry, who has almost singlehandedly, and taken it to 183 countries across the world. No mean feat, given the company is merely 6 years into existence.

Among the other awardees in this prestigious ceremony were bellwethers such as Mr. Ajay Piramal, Chairman of the Piramal Group, Mr. Shekhar Bajaj, the Chairman and Managing Director of Bajaj Electricals Limited and Mr. Hari Om Rai, the Founder and CMD of mobile giant Lava International Limited, in their respective categories.

The gala, a by-invitation-only event, which was attended by more than 250 attendees and renowned industry chieftains, awarded 22 leading Indian business founders for their vision and commitment to innovation and excellence. The awards are held in 14 countries including India, and are considered the “Olympics” because of the stringent screening process. 

The Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards is hosted by Enterprise Asia, one of the largest and most respected non-profit organizations in the Asian region today. With several initiatives aimed at sustainable enterprise development and catalysis across the country, Enterprise Asia also confers several renowned distinctions including the Asia Responsible Enterprise Awards, International Innovation Awards, Asia Entrepreneurship Forum, International CSR Summit and the International Innovation Summit.

CredForce has won several accolades as the only-of-its-kind credentialing ecosystem. These include ranking among the BRICS’ fastest growing companies and being a force to reckon, with its large and diverse global partner network.

“We at CredForce are far beyond driven at this stage. We’re currently consolidating our global presence and are in the process of introducing quite a few industry pioneering products across our entire ecosystem. It was very kind of the distinguished jury to acknowledge our efforts. Cheers to my team for yet another victory”, Rajiv Gupta said, speaking to scribes and media personnel after receiving the award.
