This year marks the eighth anniversary of the highly coveted awards, which is hosted by the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC).
Hosted by the NSBC and proudly sponsored by Adams and Adams, DHL, FNB and World Famous Events, the South African Small Business Awards pay tribute to the contribution that small businesses make in building communities and creating much needed employment, all while providing quality goods and services to their valued customers.
Mike Anderson, Founder and CEO of the NSBC says the growing number of entries and continued success of the awards is testament to how important small business is to the South African economy.
“More than ever before, small businesses have a critical role to play in job creation, poverty alleviation, service delivery, and wealth creation,” he adds.
The South African Small Business Awards comprise four categories including National Small Business Champion, National Entrepreneur Champion, Woman in Business Champion, and Young Entrepreneur Champion.
The awards programme draws thousands of entries each year and to be shortlisted as a finalist is the ultimate recognition for a small business owner.
It is also a springboard to enhanced success as winners go on to enjoy new, even greater businesses opportunities.
“Small businesses and go-getting entrepreneurs still have two weeks to submit their entries for the chance to take their business to the next level,” says Anderson.
Entries close on October 7, and winners to be announced Thursday November 10 at a gala event, Montecasino- Fourways.
Tickets to attend as a delegate on 10 November are now on sale.
