Since 1998 the Technology for Women in Business (TWIB) an initiative of the DTI has given hundreds of women the opportunity to apply technology to support and grow their
businesses. This has largely contributed towards mainstreaming women’s businesses within the broader SA economy.
TWIB is calling for the 2013/14 Awards nominations. South Africans are invited to nominate women entrepreneurs who systematically use technological innovation and creative know-how for business growth and positive economic impact on the broader economy. These should be in the following three categories:
a) Micro / Emerging companies and Projects
b) Small companies
c) Medium companies
Prizes Range from ICT business solutions, hard and software products, as well as entrepreneurial business support to the maximum value of R480 000.
The nominee’s enterprise:
• must be owned by a South African citizen
• must be a formally registered company and have been existing
three years or more
• must be 60% owned by women
• must be a profit making enterprise
