SANTAM Grants for Women Entrepreneurs in South Africa

Applications are now open for the annual Santam Women of the Future Awards in partnership with FAIRLADY and TRUELOVE.

SANTAM is looking for the best women entrepreneurs in South Africa, so if you’ve just started a new business, or you’ve been running your own business for a while, they want to hear from you!

Winning one of the three SANTAM Women of the Future Awards is a gamechanger.

Not only do you get mentorship from the judge of your choice, but your business also gets enormous publicity from FAIRLADY and TRUELOVE, and from the fabulous (and renowned!) award ceremony.


  • The SANTAM Woman of the Future Title
  • Is awarded to an entrepreneur aged 30 or older whose business is older than 1000 days and who is on her way to creating an empire.
  • The SANTAM Rising Star Title
  • Is awarded to an entrepreneur between 16 and 30 years old and still within her first 1000 days, but whose business, judges believe, will flourish way beyond them.
  • The SANTAM Social Entrepreneur Title
