The Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber last week launched its second annual Top 40 Under 40 campaign in celebration of young business achievers in the area.
This year the chamber invites nominations to highlight the innovators and entrepreneurs who are the new face of business. The chamber’s Top 40 Under 40 is a showcase of dynamic people who choose to build their lives, careers and businesses in the metro. The chamber believes that there is enormous potential at all levels and in all sectors.
“The young achievers on last year’s list have proved that entrepreneurial spirit is thriving,” said Nicole Klokow, who initiated the inaugural Top 40 Under 40 list and co-ordinates the chamber’s Top 40 projects.
“The end result of the process was a list of dynamic, talented businesspeople from diverse sectors in Nelson Mandela Bay.”
This year’s focus on innovators and entrepreneurs, said Klokow, shines the spotlight on those who think out of the box.
“Innovators push the boundaries. They demonstrate leadership in their environment, whether heading up their own business or inspiring a team in the corporate environment. They explore new ideas, increase productivity, raise company profiles, and have a positive impact on the community.”
Nominations close in September. Achievers who were placed on the 2011 Top 40 Under 40 list are not eligible for nomination in 2012.
