Entries are now open for the 2021 Santam Women of the Future Awards, in association with FAIRLADY & TRUELOVE

Santam, FAIRLADY and TRUELOVE are looking for the most impactful, resilient and inspiring female entrepreneurs in the country. If you’ve started a business recently, have been running your own enterprise for a while, or know of an enterprising woman, we want to hear from you!

The prestigious awards, which are in their seventh year, provide an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the most incredible female entrepreneurs in South Africa. We believe in women, and we believe that women-led businesses can change the economy – and the future of our country.kincare products (beauty sponsor), worth R3 500

Entrepreneurs can enter one of three categories:

1. The Santam Woman of the Future title is awarded to an entrepreneur aged 30 or older whose business is more than 1 000 days old and who is well on her way to establishing an extensive enterprise.

2. The Santam Rising Star title is awarded to an entrepreneur between 16 and 30 years old who is still within her first 1 000 days, but whose business, our judges believe, will flourish way beyond them.

3. The Santam Social Entrepreneur title is awarded to an entrepreneur aged 30 or older who is making a real difference in her community. Her business/social enterprise/NPO has survived the first 1 000 days.
