Research shows that 472 million entrepreneurs worldwide attempt to start 305 million companies each year, and that approximately 100 million new businesses will open and close around the world each year for various reasons.

Despite that, another survey on global entrepreneurial activity has highlighted that Asia continues to be a hotbed of innovation and competitiveness, propelling far ahead of Europe in the start-up arena.

However, not all start-ups have the potential to impact jobs and growth, and so with an aim to identify those who do make the cut, the Best New Recruitment Solutions Providers category was introduced at the HR Vendors of the Year 2018 awards.

In the awards, held in Singapore and Malaysia, a panel of judges recognised the winners for their ability to deliver exemplary value and quantifiable results similar to those of big providers, in a time span of no longer than five years.
