Our MD Divine Ndhlukula was the Exceptional entrepreneur category winner of the EY World Entrepreneur Awards 2014 in Johannesburg, on12 November 2014.
EY’s global Entrepreneur Of The Year programme is the world's most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs. Recognised globally, the award provides a unique way of encouraging entrepreneurial activity and recognising the contribution of outstanding men and women who inspire others with their vision, leadership and achievement. As the first and only truly global award of its kind, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates those who are building and leading successful, growing, and dynamic business, recognising them through regional, national, and global awards programs in 140 cities in 50 countries.
The EY World Entrepreneur award is more than just a tribute. With Africa tipped for significant growth, it is important that we as a continent nurture support and celebrate entrepreneurs because they are lifeblood of economies. In order to achieve the potential the continent holds, Africa needs entrepreneurs who build high growth companies with integrity, who add value to their markets, and who develop skills on a large scale, while creating sustainable jobs. As a leader in guiding entrepreneurs and their companies, EY honours these entrepreneurs for the energy and innovative ideas they bring to generate growth in their economies, while inspiring others to follow in their footsteps.
CJ Kujenga, Strategic Growth Markets leader for EY Africa says, “This year’s winners are testament to the talent that exists on the continent. As potential drivers of the economy and creators of jobs, they embody the entrepreneurial spirit and commitment we all need to realise the potential of Africa.”
