In this edition of Business Day Spotlight, we’re talking about the role of large corporate players in helping to spur innovation in the technology start-up market. 

In the first part, host Mudiwa Gavaza is joined by Mandisa Ntloko-Petersen, chief marketing officer at technology firm BCX.

Join the conversation:  

Ntloko-Petersen says BCX has been supporting small technology businesses for a long time. While this helps the businesses grow, increase competition and employ more people, it also helps BCX’s teams stay abreast with what’s going in the market and spurs their own innovation. A win-win. 

The company recently announced the winners of its Digital Innovation Awards for 2020. In the second part of the discussion, we speak to two of the winners.
