The 27th annual Da Vinci Institute’s 2018 tt100 Business Innovation Awards took place on Wednesday, 14 November at the Johannesburg Country Club under the theme, “Celebrating Leadership”. Da Vinci’s tt100 Awards programme recognises South Africa’s finest role models who demonstrate excellence based on The Da Vinci Institute’s trademarked TIPS framework, which looks at how organisations manage their Technology, Innovation and People in a Systemic environment.
This year saw 192 companies enter the programme which resulted in 1152 category entrants. Speaking about the awards, Prof. Bennie Anderson, Director tt100 said, “The tt100 creates an awareness of the importance of having a conceptual framework around developing business, such as how matters related to technology management, managing innovation, managing people and things systemically if drawn together, can allow you to be more agile, more aligned and more engaged.”

Bumblebee is proud to announce that we were announced winner of the “Best Innovation Concept” for MobeeWash, our mobile carwash app which was launched in 2017.
The ‘brainchild” of Bumblebee founder Sean O’Connell, techie and self-confessed petrol-head, MobeeWash was born out of a desire for convenience and a professional and classy vehicle clean! Standardisation, job creation and taking the chore out of getting your car washed is what fuels Sean and his team’s passion for the app.
“MobeeWash provides a platform that independent operators and established businesses alike could use ensuring a synthesis where all parties are happy,” says O’Connell.
Teamwork and collaboration form an integral part of the MobeeWash model, this stems from the ethos of the app development team at Bumblebee Consulting (the development arm of the Bumblebee Group and proudly South African). With over 100 years of experience collectively in software development, infrastructure management, product development, and project management, their team could successfully bring MobeeWash to the forefront of lifestyle app technology.
MobeeWash is also available in Melbourne, Australia and are open to collaboration worldwide.
