Cape Town, South Africa (PRWEB) November 23, 2006
Cape Town based online marketing company, incuBeta (http://www.incuBeta.com), is once again in the limelight after winning the 2006 South African Science & Technology Minister's Award for Overall Excellence last week in Johannesburg.
The award was presented as part of the Technology Top 100 (http://www.TT100.co.za) programme which is South Africa's premier business and technology awards programme. The two most prestigious awards are those presented by the South African Minister of Science & Technology. incuBeta (including their sister company http://www.Clicks2Customers.com) won one of these esteemed awards for Overall Excellence in the Small/Medium enterprise sector. Last year, incuBeta won the TT100 Most Promising Emerging Enterprise award and was a small enterprise finalist in 2004.
Winning this year's Minister's award for Overall Excellence in the TT100 awards shows that the company is coming of age and entrenching itself as one of South Africa's most promising technology companies.
"This award is a tribute to the high quality team of people that we have assembled at incuBeta. We have demonstrated that it is possible for a South African company, using locally developed technology to compete on a global stage, in Search Marketing, one of the fastest growing and newest areas of technology," said Giles Douglas, CEO of incuBeta. "We intend to build on this achievement to establish incuBeta as the market leader in Search Engine Marketing."
According to Minister of Science and Technology, Mosibudi Mangena, the Technology Top 100 Awards are recognised as the premier business excellence awards in South Africa. "This celebration of excellence is also a celebration of truly South African innovation," says Mangena.
The National TT100 awards programme has been in operation since 1990 and aims to recognise, encourage, measure and honour South African companies' for the value their use of technology brings to the country's economy. Moreover, the awards enable organisations to benchmark themselves against their peers, recognise the way they use technology and innovation to achieve objectives and broadcast their achievements to the country.
The award was handed to incuBeta by the Minister of Science and Technology at the TT100 National Awards Banquet at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
The Minister's awards are the highest achievements in the annual technology top 100 awards program. They are presented to the best Large and Small/Medium enterprise respectively.
incuBeta has expanded rapidly from three founding members to a fully functional operation of over 60 employees with offices in Cape Town, London and Los Angeles and is recognised and respected globally for its contribution to the online marketing arena.
Vinny Lingham, founder and Chief Strategy Officer of incuBeta and sister company Clicks2Customers says, "After winning two other major awards in the UK & USA earlier this year, winning this award firmly establishes incuBeta as the Premier Search Engine Marketing & Web Development company in South Africa, as well as on a global front."
Lingham, whose widely read Blog (http://www.vinnylingham.com) receives over 20 000 hits a month, attributes the company's success to "utilising globally recognised technology standards, advanced Search Engine Marketing techniques and the most sophisticated Web 2.0 methodologies and techniques."
