Anzisha Prize – Dar Edition

Anzisha Prize Tour is rolling through Africa and the first stop is Tanzania. Over the course of the last week I’ve been in Dar Es Salaam spreading the word about the Anzisha Prize opportunity – what a week it’s been!  By the end of day two, one thing was clear – Dar es Salaam is bursting with young entrepreneurial energy. What’s really cool to see is that all of the change makers and self-starters that I’ve met so far are young…very young and most know each other or even in some cases grew up together. Former playmates that are now fellow game changers – gotta love it.

First things first, met up with Andrew Mahiga, managing director of Maanisha, an incredible young entrepreneur with great ideas and an even greater knack for getting things done (and running marathons).

With successful youth personal development shows on two of the most popular radio stations in Dar – Choice FM and Clouds FM – and multiple media production projects in the works, Maanisha is definitely a group to keep your eyes on.  #AnzishaEffect #watchthisspace

Andrew invited 2012 Anzisha Fellow David Mwendele onto the show on Choice FM last Saturday to join a panel of young Tanzanian entrepreneurs. It was a great segment. Pics coming soon! Missed it? No worries. Checkout the 2nd radio interview this Saturday Feb 16 on Clouds FM at 1500 hours/3pm

Later sat down for an interview with a guy by the name of Al-Amin, another talented young blogger and radio show producer Look out for the upcoming segment on Vijama FM.
