Anzisha Prize Venture Building Fellowship

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. 30 applicants from across Africa will be selected to join the three-year venture-building fellowship to help build and run sustainable businesses.
The Anzisha Prize Venture Building Fellowship is a partnership between the African Leadership Academy and Mastercard Foundation that seeks to fundamentally and significantly increase the number of very young job-generative entrepreneurs in Africa.
