10 years of Anzisha: Looking back to move forward


Your Entrepreneurial Journey Starts Here...

It has been 10 years of supporting and celebrating very young African entrepreneurs and we've amassed some great partners whose visions have merged with ours of showcasing the very best of Africa's youngest entrepreneurs.

As we look back on our shared achievements with our fellows, Anzisha partners and friends, our excitement for the future is palpable. The road ahead is an exciting one and we say 'Sankofa' in the Ghanaian language Twi which means "We have the capacity to revisit the past and extract knowledge and wisdom that we need to remake the future".

Our work will continue to delve deeper and champion the importance of youth
entrepreneurship on the continent. Join us as we celebrate 10 years of Anzisha: looking back to move forward.


#Anzisha10 goes to 5 African countries

To celebrate our 10th year, The Anzisha Prize will be on tour in  5 African countries which will include South Africa, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal and Kenya. The tours will end with the Anzisha Prize Forum in Nairobi, Kenya where the 2020 Anzisha Prize winner will be announced.

The tours are set to further catalyse the conversations around youth entrepreneurship on the continent. From the social impact entrepreneurs of Cape Town to the innovation gurus in Nairobi, The Anzisha Program will gather key stakeholders in the entrepreneurial space to delve deeper into youth entrepreneurship on the continent.

Drawing hundreds of the continent's brightest youngest entrepreneurs and those who support them, join us for #Anzisha10 #AnzishaSankofa

Our first stop will be Cape Town on 3-5 March.
