The BCX Digital Innovation Awards are back, and this year’s event promises to be more thrilling than ever! Celebrating its sixth anniversary, the competition has evolved into the premier stage for trailblazing technology professionals and forward-thinking organisations across South Africa. This celebration of ingenuity honours extraordinary innovations designed by South Africans.

 

In past years, the competition has dazzled with groundbreaking entries from prestigious companies such as Old Mutual, Discovery Bank, and Shoprite Checkers. Moreover, the SME participants have introduced awe-inspiring innovations, leaving an indelible mark on industries both locally and globally.

 

This year’s edition is set to elevate the excitement with the three dynamic categories as last year: Public Sector Entities, Corporate Enterprises, and Small & Medium Enterprises. Innovators are gearing up to revolutionise society and steer us toward a digitally advanced nation.

 

“We are thrilled to witness the groundbreaking innovations that this year’s participants will bring to the table. Each year, my fellow judges and I are impressed by the inventiveness and brilliance of the submissions,” exclaims Jan Bouwer Chief Solutions Officer at BCX.

 

The competition is not just about accolades; it is about driving societal progress, boosting business growth, and spearheading digital transformations to better serve communities. The social innovations emerging from the Public Sector have significantly uplifted the welfare and well-being of South Africans. Meanwhile, pioneering products, processes, and services are reshaping our way of life.

 

“We are calling on all Public Sector Entities, Corporate Enterprises, and SMEs who are pushing the boundaries of digital innovation to come forward. This is your moment to shine, to display your creativity, and to help us mould a digitally empowered future for our country,” urges Bouwer.
