Training programmes, on-air advertising and cash are all up for grabs in this year's competition.

It has forced businesses to relook the way they do things and find new ways to survive and even thrive.

To help your business navigate these stormy waters, Nedbank Business Ignite with 702 is back and will launch soon.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, founder of Furaha Afrika Holding and business growth expert Matsi Modise says given where the world is, the is no better time than now to inspire businesses to ignite themselves.

We are looking for business owners that can illustrate that they will survive the pandemic ad thrive thereafter.
