The Anzisha Prize, Africa’s premier entrepreneurship initiative for young people between the ages of 15 and 22, today announced the next cohort of 30 leading young entrepreneurs that will join its three-year Venture Building Program.
Launched in 2011, the Anzisha Prize is a partnership between the Mastercard Foundation and the Africa Leadership Academy and the only venture program of its kind in Africa. Its next cohort of entrepreneurs comprises an exciting mix of changemakers in the agriculture, health, education, and fashion industries.
The 30 entrepreneurs join the ranks of 172 young African entrepreneurs who have benefited from the fellowship since its inception in 2011. Businesses and entrepreneurs that show exemplary growth and initiative receive benefits and services such as short courses, cloud services, and cash stipends valued at $140 000 USD over the course of three years.
