The prestigious Standard Bank KZN Top Business Awards 2024 are now openfor entries


KwaZulu-Natal may be one of South Africa’s top tourist spots, but at its heart is a thriving

business community contributing to the province’s standing as the second-largest contributor

to South Africa’s GDP. Celebrating this financial prowess and the spirit of business

innovation and achievement that drives the province’s business sector is the long-standing,

prestigious annual Standard Bank KZN Top Business Awards, once again calling for entries.

Over the years, the Standard Bank KZN Top Business Awards have grown in stature. Now in

its 18 th year, the Awards recognise achievements in nine broad categories, including

businesses' contributions to employee wellness, their communities, and green energy, says Hameed Noormahomed, Head of Business Banking, Client Coverage, KZN at Standard

Bank.


“Entries are now open and will close on 14 June 2024. Then, entries will be judged, and the

event will culminate with the announcement of the winners at a gala dinner on 17 July 2024.

To make the event as representative as possible, there are no costs attached to entries. We

encourage KZN’s businesses to participate and share their achievements with the business

sector and public.”


“Undoubtedly, the highlight of the presentation gala dinner will be the honorary Business

Personality Award given to the businessperson who has inspired others through their

exemplary business achievements and industry influence.”

The 2024 Awards cover activities that include:

  • Manufacturing

  • Transport and logistics

  • Business, financial services and education

  • Agriculture and Agri-processing

  • Franchising

  • Family-owned managed business

  • Green energy initiatives

  • Employee wellness

  • Social and community responsibility.


Added to these categories are awards for Standard Bank’s clients, which include the

Standard Bank SME Client of the Year for businesses with turnovers of less than R100

million per annum. Businesses with more than R 100 million annual turnovers will be

recognised through the Standard Bank Client of the Year Award for Larger Enterprises.

“The reintroduction of the Partnership Award will recognise the role of teamwork and

effective inter-agency collaboration. Once again, the people of KZN can participate by

selecting their KZN Top Brand Award, which will be decided by popular vote through an SMS

voting system.


“Our ongoing support of the event illustrates our commitment to the province, the businesses

and the people of KZN. As a leading financial services partner, we will proudly continue to

support businesses ranging from start-ups to established industry leaders in the diverse and

dynamic KwaZulu-Natal landscape,” concludes Noormahomed.

“As KwaZulu-Natal continues to develop and strengthen its role as a contributor to the

national GDP and as home to South Africa’s leading port, it is fitting that the Standard Bank

KZN Top Business Awards celebrates the achievements of our business community and

their contributions to building a prosperous future for all,” adds Grant Adlam, CEO of KZN

Top Business.
