Put your business in the spotlight at the 2015 South African Small Business Awards


Celebrating the importance and the success of small businesses in South Africa, entries for the 2015 South African Small Business Awards are open. The awards, hosted by the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) recognise the tireless journey, hard work, outstanding achievements and vision of entrepreneurs and small businesses from all industry sectors throughout South Africa.

 Proudly sponsored by FNB, Adams and Adams, and Vodacom, this year’s winners will be announced on Thursday 5 November at a glittering gala breakfast at Montecasino in Fourways.

Now in its seventh year, the South African Small Business Awards have grown to become highly regarded as an event that highlights the critical role small businesses play in creating employment and strengthening the South African economy.

 Mike Anderson, Founder and CEO of the NSBC says in addition to recognising the achievements of small business owners, the awards also inspire business owners and entrepreneurs to keep striving for success. “Entry into the South African Small Business Awards is the ultimate recognition for every business owner and entrepreneur. It is the springboard to enhanced business success.”

 “The awards programme is open to small businesses and entrepreneurs in South Africa and receives thousands of entries every year,” explains Anderson. “It is hugely rewarding to see the recognition and new businesses opportunities that winners of the South African Small Business Awards go on to enjoy, proving that small business can become big business.”

 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 event promises to be memorable morning filled with awards, fine entertainment and fun, all complimented by a luxurious breakfast and the opportunity to meet and mingle with the country’s top entrepreneurs and celebrities.

“Entries for the awards close on 16 October, so it’s not too late to enter, secure your space and put your business in the spotlight,” says Anderson.

 Due to high demand, space is limited.  Tickets for the South African Small Business Awards on 5 November are on sale now for R350 to attend as a delegate.
