NOTICE: Cancellation of the YBAA 2020/21 Competition

After careful consideration, the organising committee of the Roshgold Young Business Achiever Awards (YBAA) has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s YBAA competition and all associated events. It is regrettable that this action needed to be taken.

This follows safety & logistical concerns as well as the sensitivity of financial challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and recent events in the country.

“This decision was made after careful consideration and due diligence in seeking alternate possible solutions. Circumstances have forced us to delay the results as well.” said Ebrahim Sujee, Chairman of Roshgold Investment Holdings.

“While we are deeply saddened having to cancel the event, the safety and viability of this competition for our respected participants, judges, management team, associated sponsors, partners and supporters of the awards has to remain our key priority.” Said Mr Sujee.

  • The current 2020/21 competition is thus cancelled.
  • The YBAA will consider relaunching the competition dependant on the abovementioned factors.
  • We apologise to all our finalists for the regrettable cancellation of the competition – we have received a number of notable small business entries. Should the competition re-launch, we will allow concession in re-entry for those participant’s (who currently entered in this year’s competition) and may be one year over the age limit when the competition is relaunched.
  • Twenty Top Finalists will be offered a complimentary prize from Roshgold for their participation.- Should there be any future opportunities from Roshgold or our associated sponsors, we will be sure to share with our respected Participants 2020/21.We thank all YBAA Participants 2020/21, Sponsors and Partners for their participation, kind support and understanding.
