Anton van Heerden, Managing Director and Executive Vice President, Africa & Middle East at Sage said: “During Sage Summit, Johannesburg becomes the hub for the region’s entrepreneurs. This community is the most powerful driver of economic prosperity in the Africa and Middle East’s economy, creating more than two thirds of all jobs. We will celebrate these business builders, support them with the technology of tomorrow and seek to give them a voice on the world stage.”
