The success of these awards is a testament to the importance of small businesses for the South African economy. “The crucial role that small businesses play in job creation, poverty alleviation, service delivery, and wealth creation cannot be underestimated,” says Mike Anderson, Founder & CEO of the NSBC.
The 2023 South African Small Business Awards pays tribute to the contribution that small businesses make in building communities and creating employment, at the same time providing top quality goods and services to their customers. “The awards also inspire other small businesses to continue striving for the highest levels of growth and success, knowing that some of the most respected companies in South Africa today also started out small,” says Anderson.
There are four main category awards that include:
- National Small Business Champion
- National Entrepreneur Champion
