Santam Women of the Future Awards

This year is the 6th annual Santam Women of the Future Awards in partnership with FAIRLADY and, for the first time this year, our sister title, TRUE LOVE.

We’re looking for the best women entrepreneurs in the country, so if you’ve just started a new business, or you’ve been running your own business for a while, we want to hear from you!

We really want to celebrate and encourage women entrepreneurs: we believe in women, and we believe women running their own businesses, in their own ways, can change the economy – and the future – of our country. 
Winning one of the three Santam Women of the Future Awards is a gamechanger. Not only do you get mentorship form the judge of your choice, but your business also gets enormous publicity from FAIRLADY and TRUE LOVE, and from the fabulous (and renowned!) award ceremony. Become a part of it!

Santam understands that the first 1000 days of running your own business are the hardest. If you’re still in business by day 1001, they believe, then you’re in it for the long-term. Santam’s many years of supporting women in business in South Africa have given them real insight into potential pitfalls in your entrepreneurial journey. For all that accumulated wisdom, go to – it’s a great resource!
