Enter the 2017 FAIRLADY Women of the Future Awards

Last year I had the pleasure of attending the 2016 FAIRLADY Women of the Future Awards where the magazine was celebrating women entrepreneurs - their vision, courage, and contribution to our country.

I loved every minute of it and had the pleasure of interviewing some of those women too. And this year, Fairlady together with Sanlam are doing it again. The entries for the 2017 FAIRLADY Women of the Future Awards in partnership with Santam are open and two remarkable female entrepre­neurs who are changing our world will win loads of amazing prizes to help them take their businesses even further.


There are two categories: the FAIRLADY Woman of the Future title is awarded to an entrepreneur whose business has survived the first 1000 days and who is well on her way to creating an empire.

The FAIRLADY Rising Star goes to an entrepreneur between 16 and 30 years old who is still within her first 1000 days, but whose business our judges believe will survive and flourish way beyond them.

Last year, two women emerged as the overall winers in both categoris: Woman of the Future 2016, Sarah Collins of Wonderbag, and Rising Star, Moyin Oloruntoba of The A1.
