The Anzisha Prize seeks to award young entrepreneurs who have developed and implemented innovative solutions to social challenges or started successful businesses within their communities. 20 finalists from across Africa win a spot in a lifelong fellowship what will help to accelerate their path to entrepreneurship success.
In addition to the Anzisha Prize for young entrepreneurs, this year the program will be launching awards for professionals within the youth entrepreneurship ecosystem who contribute to the success of young entrepreneurs in their communities. We will celebrate individuals and groups who highlight and embody the spirit of the Anzisha program.
