While the South African economy is subdued, there are many small and medium (SME) businesses working tirelessly to succeed, grow and positively impact the struggling business landscape. In an effort to motivate and grow the SME sector, The National Small Business Chamber (NSBC), in association with World Famous Events, has today announced South Africa’s 2017 Top 20 Small Business and Entrepreneurship Award recipients.
With eight main categories, the awards, now in its ninth year, serve to not only acknowledge the respective businesses, but to also assist them to prosper even more. Mike Anderson, Founder and CEO of the NSBC says that the entrants this year proved that there are business opportunities within different sectors: “You just need to have an idea and the passion to make it a reality. All our winners today are fantastic examples of people who spotted an opportunity, believed in their skill and made it into a viable business.”
He says that self-belief, above all else is the one attribute that sets winners apart. The NSBC is fortunate enough to work with over 127 000 SMEs and through its engagements have pinpointed what it takes to keep the business doors open.
