LONDON, Dec. 20, 2021
LONDON, Dec. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Eigen Technologies (Eigen), the global intelligent document processing (IDP) provider, is delighted to announce that its Co-founder & CEO Dr Lewis Z. Liu has won the inaugural Blossom Award for Entrepreneurship in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the British-Chinese community.
Founded by Alan Mak MP and Cathy Watts, the Blossom Awards bring together the nation's leaders and influencers to recognise inspirational achievers from one of the UK's most-established, patriotic and successful communities.
The Awards focus on members of the British-Chinese community who were born in the UK, or who have spent a majority of their lives living or working in the UK, and therefore have a strong connection to the United Kingdom and consider themselves British.
The Entrepreneurship award celebrates individuals from the British-Chinese community who are leading the way in founding and growing a business. Since founding Eigen in 2015 Lewis has grown the business to over 150 people based in London, New York and Lisbon. Eigen is a leader in AI technology and serves 40% of the world's most important banks.
Dr. Lewis Z. Liu, Co-founder & CEO of Eigen Technologies said:
"I am delighted and humbled to win this award. When I arrived in the UK back in 2008, I couldn't have imagined that I would be recognised in this way. Having built a life and family in London, and become a British citizen, it means so much to be recognised in this way. As someone of Chinese heritage living in both Britain and the United States, I have always appreciated the importance of contributing to society and setting a positive example of leadership to others. In both Britain and the United States those of Chinese heritage are underrepresented as founders and leaders of tech businesses such as mine. I hope that I have done a small bit to help change this and inspire others to do the same. I would like to thank the organizers Alan Mak MP and Cathy Watts for a brilliant inaugural awards. The calibre of the nominees shows that they will undoubtably go from strength to strength in the years ahead."
