Entrepreneur of the Year competition 2014Date posted: 07.03.2014 | Author: Harry Bovensmann
Entrepreneurs can now enter the 2014 Sanlam/Business Partners Entrepreneur of the Year competition, which aims to honour, benefit and uplift local entrepreneurs. Entries close on 16 June 2014.
But Entrepreneur of the Year® is not just about the competition. It is more than that. Entrepreneur of the Year® is about developing the standard of excellence in entrepreneurship all over South Africa. It is about promoting that excellence as the norm and not the exception.
By showcasing the winners and running the competition, as well as all the workshops with the grand SME conference, the organiser hopes to build the momentum of media activity that usually follows such events and through the media activity showcase the role models that Entrepreneur of the Year® has selected as pillars of the community.
The judges represent different areas of the business community and include a representative from the education environment. The evaluation process runs through three different filtering processes, which ensure that everything is checked to remove any human error or human preference which may creep in from time to time.
The data requested also gives the judges very important and critical information which they need in order to make a complete and holistic judgment on the candidate being reviewed. The judging process is then completed through an interview with each finalist to ensure that any questions or issues needing clarification are addressed. Furthermore, site visits are also conducted at times.
