Winners Interview

The Best

Among the Rest

Consider what sets great businesses apart from ordinary businesses. Why does 9 out of 10 businesses fail in the first year, while some go on to become global leaders?
Many of us would consider it a combination of hardwork, talent and luck. But more importantly, we believe that great businesses possess innate strength built from years of preparation and understanding the fundamentals of doing business. This, when combined with consistent growth, a result of vision and courage, sets great businesses apart from the rest.
For these businesses, the Golden Bull Award epitomises the strength and growth of their businesses: forever steadfast, forever charging forward.

For the past 20 years, the number of SMEs and corporates have exponentially flourished in Malaysia, with similar trends blooming across Southeast Asia. This has created staggering competition in all fields. Technology and globalisation has also helped to promote an over-abundance of entrepreneurs in every industry.

The Golden Bull Award offers the solution paired with opportunities. Through its prestigious recognition, the award tells of quality and trust of its winners, bringing a focus of attention to those on our platform. The international reach of this award also promotes cross-border recognition, stimulating growth and partnership. The Golden Bull Award is an opportunity to rise above the ordinary onto the global stage.

The award will also receive the backing of powerful media locally and internationally. Building upon the existing support of government efforts, the award will be an ascension towards new levels.
