From the beginning, the awards were designed to fill a void in corporate philanthropy. Hence, it was aimed at supporting exceptional individuals around the world. Also, to support pioneers responding to major challenges with original and innovative projects that positively impact the world, but have no or little access to traditional funding.

Since the programme’s launch, more than 34,000 applications have been received, and 150 laureates from across the world have been selected for the award.
