Brighter Days Ahead: Double Win for PolicyStreet at MVCA 2022 Awards
PolicyStreet was named Outstanding Investee Company while its Co-founder and Chief Product Officer, Winnie Chua, received the award for Outstanding Woman Entrepreneur at the Malaysian Venture Capital & Private Equity Association (MVCA) 15th Annual Dinner and Awards Night held at Sime Darby Convention Centre on 8 December. The awards signify the company’s excellence and success in the insurtech landscape.
The Outstanding Investee Company award acknowledges PolicyStreet’s impressive three-year compound annual growth rate, whereas the Outstanding Woman Entrepreneur award recognises Winnie’s contribution to the company as a woman entrepreneur in increasing the company’s visibility and success.
“We’re proud to be named Outstanding Investee Company by MVCA. The award is a great testament to our efforts in growing PolicyStreet to become the leading insurtech startup within Southeast Asia and Australia. We’d like to thank Gobi Partners for nominating us for the award, as well as our investors for believing in our journey and vision,” says Lee Yen Ming, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of PolicyStreet.
“Receiving the Outstanding Woman Entrepreneur award is a true honour, especially coming from the male-dominated insurance industry. Promoting gender equality in the workplace has always been a purpose close to my heart, and this award demonstrates that gender equality can not only make a difference to our company, but it’s also the way to go for the insurtech industry,” says Winnie Chua, Co-founder and Chief Product Officer of PolicyStreet.
MVCA’s 15th Annual Dinner and Awards Night carried the theme of Brighter Days Ahead, representing the resilience and growth of Malaysia’s venture ecosystem. The event honoured industry players, partners, and entrepreneurs who achieved outstanding milestones in Malaysia’s funding industry in 2021/2022.
