THE $75,000 ANZISHA PRIZE FOR AFRICAN ENTREPRENEURS -
CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES EXTENDED UNTIL 15 APRIL 2013
 
This is a call for youth-focused NGO's and non-profits to help us find Africa's youngest, most innovative business and social entrepreneurs! Nominate someone today, or spread the word by forwarding this flyer to your networks!
 
With more than $75 000 USD in cash prizes, the Anzisha Prize - hosted by the African Leadership Academy in partnership with The MasterCard Foundation - identifies, supports and celebrates African entrepreneurs aged 15 to 22 who have implemented innovative community projects or businesses. There is also a $10 000 USD Energy Prize in addition to the $75 000 cash prize. The competition is regarded as Africa’s foremost youth entrepreneurial awards which reward young African entrepreneurs who are making a difference by transforming both the continent and their communities. Finalists will travel to South Africa for a weeklong entrepreneurial conference and stand to collectively win $75,000 in cash prizes, as well as access to lifelong mentorship that can be provided by Anzisha Prize’s vast network of individual partners, organisations, and youth leaders.
 
 We are delighted with the calibre of the applications we’ve received to date and we’re hoping to see even more applications come in from the following countries that we have yet to receive applications from. These are Algeria, Burundi, Cape Verde, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Gabon, Guinea Bissau, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Namibia, Niger, Reunion, Sao Tome & Principe, Seychelles, Somalia, South Sudan and Togo.
