August 2018 News

FNB Business supported by Endeavor South Africa has announced Saryx Engineering Group (SEG) as the overall winner of the 2018 FNB Business Innovation Awards (FNB BIA).

Founded by two female entrepreneurs, Ingrid Osborne and Julie Mathieson, Saryx offers innovative solutions to help companies of all sizes track document compliance and share documents securely.

“Being chosen as a winner among these great companies fundamentally affirms our business model,” says Osborne. “We have done some amazing work and continue to evolve while moving the needle in the industry using new innovations and technology tools.”

“Winning this award is a step in the right direction to access global markets,” adds Mathieson. “We are very excited about the future and the opportunities that this accolade affords our business.”

FNB Business will sponsor Osborne and Mathieson to participate at the coveted two-day Endeavor International Selection Panel (ISP) in Argentina in September. ISP brings together high-impact entrepreneurs to present their companies to world-leading business personalities for a chance to be part of an exclusive global network.

Mike Vacy-Lyle, CEO of FNB Business, says the FNB Business Innovation Awards is an incredible platform that showcases business excellence and the potential of South Africa’s entrepreneurs: “Since the launch of the awards in 2015, we have seen winners and finalists go on to become thought leaders and employment creators in their respective industries. This attests to the ability of the initiative to enable businesses with the highest potential to scale to access global markets. Congratulations to (SEG) for winning this prestigious award and to all the businesses that took part in this year’s competition.”

“The FNB Business Innovation Awards is a celebration of the remarkable journeys of some of our country’s entrepreneurial role models,” adds Catherine Townshend, managing director of Endeavor South Africa. “These founders are committed to building successful local businesses that drive much needed economic growth and job creation. Congratulations to Ingrid Osborne and Julie Mathieson on a remarkable journey in founding and building the business to this point. Through Endeavor and the exposure at the ISP, we are confident that they will be even more motivated to think bigger and engage with a network of like-minded ambitious entrepreneurs that are driven to build a local business with a global footprint.”

Selection criteria this year included: leadership potential, commitment, ecosystem impact, turnover, ownership, scale and acceleration, uniqueness of the business and growth trajectory.

Factors such as brand and reputation, stakeholder relations and goodwill, environmental sustainability, social responsibility and quality of governance were also taken into consideration during the process of selecting the winner. Over 600 companies entered the competition. For a comprehensive list of the finalists, judges, and background, visit www.fnbbusinessinnovationawards.co.za.
