Africa's biggest VENTURE BUILDING FELLOWSHIP for her youngest entrepreneurs

Anzisha Prize is a three-year fellowship for young African entrepreneurs between 15 and 22 years old. We identify, equip young people with tools and resources to run successful businesses and celebrate their entrepreneurial endeavours.
