As the industry's premier information source, the Asian Venture Capital Journal tasks itself with highlighting the firms, professionals, investments, exits and fundraises that are a cut above the rest. We do this on an ongoing basis through our editorial coverage and annually through our awards. As such, we are proud to introduce the 21st AVCJ Private Equity & Venture Capital Awards.

The Awards have become a mark of distinction in Asian private equity, and a showcase for first-class innovation, ingenuity and performance. They are also unique in the region in how they are distributed - relying primarily on nominations and votes cast by Asia's entire private equity and venture capital community, but with contributions from a select panel of industry judges.
