Everlytic’s Co-founder and Chief Technical Officer, Sam Hutchison, could be the one in 2015.

Sam has been shortlisted for the FNB Business Innovation Award 2015, organised in partnership between FNB Business and Endeavor South Africa.

The shortlisted candidates were announced earlier this month following an intense judging process which saw all qualifying entrepreneurs go through a series of interviews by a panel of business experts.

Michael Vacy-Lyle, CEO of FNB Business, explains that over the last eight months, the judges have interviewed some of South Africa’s most promising entrepreneurs and made tough choices to ensure that only the best candidates make it to the final round.

He adds that the remaining candidates have demonstrated exceptional innovation and remarkable potential to scale their enterprises.

The winner of the FNB Business Innovation Awards will be announced on 4 June. The overall winner will get an opportunity to present their business ideas at the prestigious International Selection Panel (ISP) in San Francisco later this year.
