The Witness - - YOUR MONEY -

BEV­ER­LEY Gumbi, founder and owner of Isivuno Con­tainer Busi­ness — a con­tainer con­ver­sion, rental and sup­ply com­pany based in Pine­town — has been awarded the Judges’ Prize at the 2018 En­tre­pre­neur of the Year com­pe­ti­tion.

The com­pe­ti­tion awards event, spon­sored by San­lam and Busi­ness Part­ners, was held in Jo­han­nes­burg this month.

The Judges’ Prize recog­nises busi­nesses that may not yet be at the same level — in terms of size and turnover — of the com­pe­ti­tion win­ners, but make a spe­cial im­pres­sion on the judges due to the busi­ness’ so­cial im­pact and fu­ture prospects, and the en­tre­pre­neur’s pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and out­look.

“Hav­ing fo­cussed mainly on the con­ver­sion of or­di­nary ship­ping con­tain­ers into busi­ness and dwelling units, we are well on our way to be­com­ing the lo­cal en­ter­prise devel­op­ment part­ner of choice. We hope to one day pen­e­trate other African mar­kets by form­ing strate­gic part­ner­ships,” Gumbi said. — Busi­ness Edi­tor.
