Singapore 100 Women in Tech (SG100WIT) list


The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), in partnership with the Singapore Computer Society (SCS), announced the third edition of the Singapore 100 Women in Tech (SG100WIT) List on 1st September. Unveiled by Mrs Josephine Teo, Minister for Communications & Information and Patron of the Singapore Women in Tech (SGWIT) movement, this year’s SG100WIT honourees hail from more diverse industries, signalling the increasing recognition of the role women play in the tech sector.

SG100WIT list sees a record of 800 nominations

The Singapore 100 Women in Tech (SG100WIT) 2023 is the third edition, and it received a total of 800 nominations – an increase of almost one-third from the 2021 edition, signalling the growing recognition and value that women bring to the tech sector. The final list of 100 honourees comes from a spectrum of sectors such as semiconductor, aeronautics, and biotechnology and occupies a variety of roles such as researchers, business, community leaders, and content creators.

A total of 31 nominations were received in the Girls in Tech category, doubling the number of nominations received in the last edition of SG100WIT. This demonstrates the growing interest in tech from young women, which is a step forward in building Singapore’s tech talent pool and bridging the talent gap.

The SG100WIT list has evolved from inception to its current edition to be a key national initiative that amplifies the brilliant capabilities of women and students in technology. In its third edition, the initiative has grown significantly to include nominees of diverse profiles - including small business owners, teachers, and investors - in addition to business leaders, technologists, entrepreneurs, researchers and students. This year's list is a testament to the multifaceted role of technology and how impactful it can be in empowering women in different careers. Through this initiative, SCS hopes to inspire more women to embrace technology across different industries in their respective careers and help build a strong pipeline of women and women leaders in technology.

Chairperson of SG100WIT 2023 Organising Committee

Themed “Empowering Yourself, Inspiring Others”, the SG100WIT List aims to empower women, highlight their successes, celebrate their progress, and inspire the industry and community at large.

In 2023, the definition of Women in Tech has been broadened to include tech policy-makers and regulators as well as women in tech from diverse sectors. For example, one of the honourees includes the CEO and co-founder of YouTrip, a leading fintech firm that is billed as Singapore’s first multi-currency travel wallet. Under Caecilia's leadership, YouTrip was recognised as ASEAN’s Best Startup of the Year and ASEAN’s Best Fintech Startup at the Global Startup Award.

On the Girls in Tech category which is under the SG100WIT List, one of the honourees was the first student to represent Singapore and won a gold medal in the European Girls' Olympiad in Informatics. This signals a growth in the quality of the nominees as the SGWIT grows in stature and recognition.

The next edition of the SG100WIT List will take place biennially and is slated for 2025.
