Small business gets big recognition at the 2015 South African Small Business Awards
The hard work and achievements of the small business community in South Africa were in the spotlight as winners of the 2015 South African Small Business Awards were announced yesterday, 05 November, at an exclusive gala breakfast at Montecasino in Fourways, Johannesburg.
The awards, hosted by the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) and sponsored by Adams & Adams, FNB and Vodacom, paid tribute to the contribution that small businesses make in creating employment and building communities in various industries throughout the country.
Being recognised as a champion further validates the award winners’ reputation for quality and also provides opportunities for further growth. While our economy struggles to reach its full potential, small businesses like the 2015 award winners act as shining examples of how innovation, perseverance and commitment can have a big impact.
