The Anzisha Prize is Africa’s biggest award for her youngest entrepreneurs aged 15 - 22 years, and hands out over USD $100,000 every year in prize money to entrepreneurs from all over the continent.

The Anzisha Prize isn’t awarded for great ideas or business plans – it recognises young entrepreneurs who are operating for-profit and non-profit ventures that demonstrate: ingenuity; scalability; and a social impact.

What Happens After You Nominate A Young Entrepreneur?

Nominees for the Prize still have to submit an application. Your nomination is an endorsement, a recommendation letter on behalf of the candidate. Candidates submit an application that gives full information about their business, enabling them to be evaluated for participation in the fellowship. The nominee receives an email letting them know that they have been nominated, and also a reminder to apply for the prize as soon as applications are open.
