The Anzisha Prize seeks to award young entrepreneurs (15 - 22 years old) from Africa who have developed and implemented innovative solutions to social challenges or started successful businesses within their communities. The 15 finalists from across Africa win a spot in a lifelong fellowship what will help to accelerate their path to entrepreneurship success. The first step in this journey is that they win an all-expenses paid trip to South Africa to be a part of a ten-day long entrepreneurship workshop and conference at the African Leadership Academy campus on the outskirts of Johannesburg.
The grand prize winners, selected from these finalists, will share prizes worth USD100,000. The fellowship continues thereafter, offering them business consulting services to unlock growth potential in their venture, connecting them to a global network of leaders, providing access.

Applications open 15 February 2017.
