YAMAN Awards is an initiative of the local government of General Santos City that recognizes the contributions of the local micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) in the economic growth and development of the city. It honours the men and the women entrepreneurs as the prime movers of our local economy who help transform industries and communities to a positive social and economic change.
YAMAN Awards was conceptualized and launched in 2005 as a search for outstanding entrepreneurs of General Santos City who exemplified the wealth and spirit of a true entrepreneur. It acknowledged successful entrepreneurs who had taken the business acumen to the next level and translated ideas into viable and sustainable enterprises. These are the people who found creative ways and exemplified services that benefited the community.

Due recognition will also be given to the people behind the success of YAMAN Awards all through the years which showed a strong force created by the partnership of the local government and the private sector.
As we go farther for innovations, we will be able to bridge the gap of being capable to integrate our values, aspirations, and efforts in order to boost our economy and our community as we render tribute to the city’s economic champions.
