Africa’s Next Generation of Entrepreneurs Competes for Top Award
Brought to you by: The Anzisha Prize
It has been less than a week since the announcement that entries are open for the premier award for Africa’s youngest entrepreneurs, the Anzisha Prize. The response has been encouraging.
Over US$75,000 in cash prizes will be shared among 12 of the continent’s most exciting social and business entrepreneurs between the ages of 15 and 22. Official tour activities have already started this week in Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), Luanda (Angola) and Kampala (Uganda). And in March the Anzisha Prize team will be making its way to Yaoundé (Cameroon) and Rabat (Morocco) hoping to encourage entries.
Within just a few days, there have already been around 30 applications from bright, young innovators spanning the continent – from Liberia to South Africa, Angola to Kenya.
Here is a taste of some of them.
