At the heart of BCX lives the spirit of innovation. It was in this spirit that we launched the BCX Digital Innovation Awards in 2019 to recognise and reward digital Innovation excellence in South African Corporates and SME’s.

2020 marks the second Annual BCX Digital Innovation Awards and we look forward to welcoming and recognising endeavours in digital innovation excellence which have embraced the power of technology.

What type of innovation are we looking for?

We are looking for Digital Innovation in any industry sector who have used technology to improve an existing process or product or to develop an entirely new process or product.
