Presented during the 2015 Entrepreneurs Awards Gala, the event gives us the opportunity to bring together the true pillars of our community for both networking and the exchange of well- earned wisdom. At StartUpAfrica, we believe in the potential of entrepreneurs and what they can do. The purpose of the Awards is two-fold. First, they provide national and international recognition to entrepreneurs, whose successful businesses and achievements contribute immensely to the local, national, global economies as well as to their communities. And second, they are vital to future economic development and prosperity and ensure that entrepreneurs are encouraged and cultivated.
