This year, the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) and World Famous Events will mark the ninth anniversary of the South African Small Business Awards, recognising the hard work and achievements of small businesses and entrepreneurs in South Africa.
Mike Anderson, founder and CEO of the NSBC, says the continued success of the awards is testament to how important small business is to the South African economy. “The crucial role that small businesses play in job creation, poverty alleviation, service delivery, and wealth creation cannot be underestimated,” he adds.
Hosted by the NSBC and World Famous Events, and proudly sponsored by DHL, MiWay, SAP, Symantec, Absa, MTN Business and Ford, the South African Small Business Awards pay tribute to the contribution that small businesses make in building communities and creating employment, all the while 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.
Each recipient of the South African Small Business Awards demonstrates immense entrepreneurial spirit, commitment and many hours of hard work.
As one of the fastest growing organisations of its kind in the world, the NSBC is dedicated to the success of small business in South Africa and aims to help small businesses grow, learn, network, connect, be inspired and have fun.
