The 2015 Premier’s Entrepreneurship Recognition Awards (PERA) is the third edition of an annual competition that recognizes the achievements and potential of some of the Province’s most exciting entrepreneurs.

By acknowledging and showcasing successful entrepreneurs, this Awards programme is helping to build a culture of entrepreneurship in the Western Cape – and in turn, support the creation of jobs and opportunities by small and medium business.
