We are definitely chuffed to have our trailblazing leader listed among such distinguished movers and shakers from various industries. And nope, he did not even need to bribe us with pizza *ahem* or steak *cough* *cough* for us to become so stoked about this. I can assure you that we are indeed an excitable bunch even without additional enticement. Trust me ahahaha.

But seriously, to be nominated for an SOE Award is a cool thing in itself. The annual award recognises the entrepreneurial spirit in Singapore by honouring local self-reliant entrepreneurs operating small and medium businesses. This year they have a total of 96 nominees who come from a gamut of industries as varied and as far reaching as entertainment to shipping and transport. From these 96 nominees, 30 will be selected as this year’s cream of the crop. You can view all of their stories here.

So please do send Anol some of your love by voting for him. Oh, and if you want to throw in a couple of pizzas for us then that would be superb as well. *wink*
