The OAN Excellence Awards is an annual award presented to "the person, persons or businesses deemed by members of OAN to have made the most significant contribution to the improvement of business and profession community". Our awards highlight and recognise entrepreneurs, businesses and professionals from the UK who are changing their industries, the economy and society in unique, original and positive ways.
We thrive on championing innovative business ideas and our awards provide the perfect platform to celebrate some of the UK’s most successful BAME ventures. We’re celebrating entrepreneurs and professionals for their exceptional innovation, and for creating social change and growth that moves the UK economy forward.
The programme runs from January to May, with winners selected across the UK for the below twelve main categories. Winners will be invited to attend the OAN Annual Awards Dinner during Africa Day Celebration Week in May, where the winners will be announced.
The nominations are open to everyone – you can nominate yourself or other entrepreneurs you know who deserve to be recognised.
Join us for The One Africa Network (OAN) Annual Business Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner 2021 on Saturday 29 May 2021 in Birmingham during Africa Day Celebration Week to showcase and celebrate the achievements of African leaders in businesses, entrepreneurs and professionals in the UK.
