Cheryl-Jane Kujenga, Africa Leader for the World Entrepreneur Awards at EY says, “At EY, we strongly believe that stronger support networks are needed for strengthening the future of entrepreneurship in South Africa. As a leader in guiding entrepreneurs and their companies, it is important to honour and recognise these women for their impact, while encouraging others to follow in their footsteps.”
