The prestigious South African Small Business Awards recognises the tireless journey, hard work and outstanding achievements of Small Businesses and Entrepreneurial Success. It is a celebration of the most outstanding businesses and the mercurial individuals behind these successful and growing enterprises.
Winning an award is the ultimate recognition for every business owner and entrepreneur. It’s the springboard to personal and business success. The 2018 South African Small Business Awards culminates at the 2018 NSBC Gala Breakfast & Awards Ceremony to be hosted at The Barnyard, Silverstar Casino, Johannesburg. With a luxurious breakfast and world-class entertainment, the morning is a memorable affair for all those attending. It also presents an opportunity to network with similar outstanding business people, captains of industry, leading entrepreneurs and the media.
This year’s NSBC Gala Breakfast & South African Small Business Awards will be hosted at The Barnyard, Silverstar Casino, Jo’Burg. This year, once again, massive recognition is up for grabs.
“We are astounded at the diversity of entrants this year, but equally encouraged as it shows the depth and breadth of South Africa’s entrepreneurial spirit. Growing small and medium businesses is vital to the local economy and its ever-growing rate of unemployment. This type of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit will undoubtedly cultivate a much healthier business landscape for all involved,” says Mike Anderson, Founder and CEO of the NSBC.
