World Innovation Awards (WIA) will be announced at WIM to recognize the most innovative pioneers from various industries. WIA are nominated justly by a committee group formed by professional and admirable entrepreneurs and investors.
Over 70% of Chinese unicorns were recognized by WIA in the past few years. At the time, these unicorns were once small and not known by the mass. WIA recognize rising stars and appreciate innovators for their efforts to make this world better.
In addition to Beijing, WIM is planned to be held in Singapore, Dubai, Tel Aviv, London, San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro and other cities to connect with world innovators.
