2023 A100 List

From creativity to commerce, the 2023 A100 List proves that Asian Pacific leaders are at the forefront of culture — enabling greater socioeconomic opportunities for all.

Everything Everywhere All At Once shattered records by becoming the most-awarded film of all time (and A24’s highest grossing), dominating the Oscars with 11 nominations and 7 wins and marking historic accolades for Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan. Turning Red was the most streamed movie debuting in 2022, cited as 3 times more likely to engage multigenerational audiences.

In commerce, Asian Pacific leaders continue to drive new industries, representing 41% of top investors on the 2022 Midas List and founding 42% of companies that IPO’d from January 2022 to April 2023.

Through their achievements, this year’s A100 honorees are bridging communities, industries, and continents, to ultimately bridge the gap—between what people expect of us, and who we can become.
