The NSBC Africa, in partnership with World Events, presented ProfitShare Partners with the Small Business Champion of the Year award at the 2019 South African Small Business Awards earlier today.
The South African Small Business Awards was initiated by the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) to recognise the tireless journey, hard work, outstanding achievements and vision of small businesses and entrepreneurial success. Now in its 11th year, the event continues to celebrate the most outstanding businesses and the exceptional businesspeople behind these successful and growing enterprises.
At an eventful Gala Breakfast presented by the NSBC and World Events earlier today, SME business owners and entrepreneurs gathered for an exciting line-up of entertainment, networking and the presentation of the awards, which, according to the NSBC have attracted a diverse range of entries all with one thing in common – a driving entrepreneurial force.
ProfitShare Partners was announced one of the Top 20 winners a week ago alongside other exceptional SMEs and entrepreneurs who have also shown relentless commitment to creating and building the small business landscape.
“It really is an honour that the team at ProfitShare Partners was recognised for our disruptive approach to funding and helping SMEs become bankable. This award will give us a bigger platform to make a bigger impact to the SMEs out there who are trying to access capital but have no financials, security or track record,” said Andrew Maren, CEO and founder of ProfitShare Partners.
The event was a wonderful celebration of entrepreneurial excellence, with the programme supported by talented local performers and entertainers.
He added, “We are humbled and grateful to be recognised as the National Small Business Champion of the Year. And to the NSBC, sponsors and organisers of the South African Small Business Awards, thank you for acknowledging small businesses in this way, and for driving those all-important initiatives that encourages more support from big businesses, government and consumers to help SMEs grow.”
