On 26 November 2015, Innovation Agency was awarded the Ministers Award for Sustainable Performance at the TT100 Business Awards, in association with Da Vinci Institute.
The TT100 winners for 2015 represented outstanding examples of technologically excellent companies. As South Africa’s benchmark of business excellence, TT100 is raising awareness of the critical need for companies to embrace the Management of Technology, Innovation and People in a sustainable manner. It offers companies the opportunity to measure their achievements against the best in the country and to showcase their exciting technological and innovative initiatives to the nation, regardless of the industries they operate in.
The TT100 Business Awards Programme, with support from government was launched in 1991 by the South African Engineering Association (SAVI). The programme has been focused on drawing attention to the importance of developing a local culture of technological innovation and excellence. As such it has evolved into one of the foremost business awards programmes that lauds South African companies for their business process in the Management of Technology, Innovation, People, Systems, Research and Sustainability - regardless of their industry. The programme is as an effective vehicle for achieving growth and innovation advancement in our country, while raising awareness of the critical need for South African companies to embrace the management of technology, innovation and people in a systemic and sustainable manner. Since 1994, TT100 has enjoyed strong endorsement by the Department of Science & Technology (DST) as the major government sponsor.
