FAIRLADY and Santam are looking for SA’s 2019 Women of the Future: Three amazing women who took the leap to work for themselves and are now creating the opportunity for others and boosting the SA economy.
Every issue of FAIRLADY features entrepreneurs who have taken that brave step to break out on their own. We believe in women, and we believe in women doing business!
We’d love you to enter yourself, or someone else, for this competition; it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. Three remarkable entrepreneurs will be awarded great prizes. The three winners can each select one of the judges to mentor them for a time. So what does it take?
There are 3 categories:
The FAIRLADY Santam Woman of the Future Title
Is awarded to an entrepreneur aged 30 or older whose business is older than 1000 days and who is on her way to creating an empire.
The FAIRLADY Santam Rising Star Title
Is awarded to an entrepreneur between 16 and 30 years old and still within her first 1000 days, but whose business, our judges believe, will flourish way beyond them.
The FAIRLADY Social Entrepreneur Title
Is awarded to an entrepreneur making a real difference in her community. Aged 30 or older, her business has survived the first 1000 days.
The prizes awarded to the winners
- R80 000 cash to the Woman of the Future
- R50 000 cash to the Rising Star and Social Entrepreneur
- An hour’s invaluable mentorship with any of our judges
- A short course from IMM Graduate School worth R15 000
