Closed - #Nomayini Competition



Every small-business owner has their #Nomayini moment – when you realise you have to, and will, make a plan, no matter what.

‘Nomayini’ (noma yini) is an isiZulu term that means ‘anything’ – and more specifically, in this instance, that one is prepared to do whatever it takes to accomplish a goal. The #Nomayini campaign has been created by the South African Future Trust (SA Future Trust) to celebrate the tenacity of small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) by shining a spotlight on the resilience of small-business owners who continue to do #Nomayini to stay up and running.

That’s R15 000 in cash, a three-month personalised coaching programme, and an advertising starter kit, including social-media marketing tools to propel you further.

What you need to do:

1. Register and enter on SimplyBiz.

2. Follow the South African Future Trust on social media:
