The Anzisha Prize

Watch the Anzisha Prize in Action!

We believe fundamentally in the power of youth-led change. Africa needs strong, innovative entrepreneurial young leaders to create jobs, solve problems and drive our economies. 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. 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 finalists 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.

Grand prize winners, selected from these finalists, will share prizes worth a total of $100,000 USD. These winners are announced during a Gala at the end of the program that celebrates the achievements of all of our finalists. 

The fellowship then continues, offering business consulting services to unlock growth potential in fellows' ventures, connecting them to a global network of leaders, providing access to global speaking opportunities, and supporting their professional development.
