The top 16 youth-owned brands awards are a platform that celebrates and recognizes youth excellence. This spectacular initiative aims to support youth-owned brands and makes sure that their efforts are seen. 

These awards acknowledge that these youth-owned brands are contributing to job creation and economic development in South Africa. What started off as an online portal that celebrates the excellence of brands has now become a platform that these brands are given a chance to shine and known throughout the country. Shining a light on the ones who dare to make a difference.
