SINGAPORE - Dec. 19, 2023 - PRLog -- Acumino, a leading Singapore venture studio, proudly announces that its CEO, Sam Johnston, has been awarded the esteemed Male CxO Trailblazers Award by Tech Trailblazers for 2023. This prestigious recognition celebrates executives in enterprise tech startups who demonstrate excellence in leadership, innovation, agile practices, diversity promotion, and community contributions:

He recently earned his EMBA (Finance) from S P Jain in Singapore with a thesis on Sustainable Venture Capital, and is completing a Master of Science in Computer Science at Georgia Tech.
  • Innovation: Johnston's transformative leadership at Acumino has been pivotal in driving innovation via the venture studio model, notably through the implementation of 'Design Engineering,' an Agile-based methodology he developed that integrates design thinking with engineering practices.
  • Agile: This forward-thinking approach has positioned Acumino at the forefront of technological advancements and showcased the efficacy of Agile methodologies in tackling global challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.
  • Diversity: A fervent advocate for diversity, Johnston has cultivated an inclusive and diverse workplace at Acumino. The majority of the company's employees are from minority classes, reflecting Acumino's commitment to equality and diverse perspectives in the tech industry.
  • Community: Johnston's contributions to the network, security, standards, and open-source communities have spurred technological advancements, impacting these fields through his dedicated advocacy and involvement in key initiatives. With over two decades in the technology sector and significant roles in companies like Google, Equinix, and Citrix, he was an early pioneer in the cloud computing movement and is now actively involved in building artificial intelligence.
The Tech Trailblazers Awards, which celebrate technological and commercial innovation as well as entrepreneurial excellence in enterprise technology startups, have recognised Johnston's significant contributions in these areas, following a rigorous judging process and subsequent affirmation by public vote.

Additionally, an Acumino portfolio company, Negative, was recognised as a runner-up in the Sustainable Tech Trailblazers Award category for its innovative approach to carbon footprint reduction.
