“Each entrant has in some way made a difference to someone’s life, either through employing them or by offering services to them. At the heart of this great nation is its people and I am proud to be associated with all these very worthy winners,” says Anderson. He says that the NSBC would not only like to congratulate the ‘Top 20’, but also thank them for their relentless commitment to building a better tomorrow.
The 2018 awards are sponsored by FedEx, Microsoft, Absa and Telkom. “We are humbled by the support of such esteemed industry leaders. Without their commitment to building tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, these businesses, would have less opportunities to thrive and flourish,” says Anderson.
