Event – Awethu Awards | Constitution Hill

Laughing guests at awards ceremony

Awethu is the most amazing company that makes me so proud to be South African. They are a company that nurture and assist young entrepeneurs – ultimately creating jobs and improving the community of our amazing country.

The Awethu Team have set themselves the ambitious goal of incubating 500 Entrepreneurs by the end of September, ultimately creating 1000 new jobs. Every month they host an event at their offices in Constitution Hill, called the Awethu Awards, where they acknowledge the hard work and achievements from Entrepreneurs already in the incubator and the efforts from the team that supports them. This month, the team were delighted to have SA’s top puppet and political commentator Chester Missing as their guest speaker, along with his sidekick Conrad Koch!
