WHAT IS THE QUEST AND WHY SHOULD YOU WATCH IT?

Join us in this 4-episode reality TV show as we search for Africa's youngest entrepreneurs who will join our prestigious fellowship program and stand the chance to win over 100 000USD in cash prizes!

Over the course of five weeks, we travel from Cape to Cairo to meet these resilient entrepreneurs, learn about their businesses and meet the people who are cheering them on.

Tune in every week to:

  • Meet entrepreneurs from across Africa who are thriving in different sectors 
  • Understand how the Anzisha Prize selects the entrepreneurs that make it to the fellowship every year
  • Engage with entrepreneurship stories that will inspire you to start your own business
  • Listen to sage business advice from influential and seasoned entrepreneurs from across Africa

At the end of the season, we will introduce you to 26 of Africa's leading young entrepreneurs who will join our 2021 Fellowship.

WHAT IF YOUR FAVE IS SELECTED?

Each episode will follow our hosts as they meet the entrepreneurs, validating their business models, understanding what makes them tick and deciding who will join the fellowship.

Each entrepreneur that is chosen for the 2021 Fellowship will receive:

  • Three years of venture building support from a dedicated team of professionals and consultants
  • Added benefits and services such as cash stipends, short educational opportunities and tools for the efficient running of their businesses
  • Cash prizes awarded to the top performing businesses at the end of their second year in the program

Access to The Quest will show you where these entrepreneurs started and why they were selected for the Anzisha Prize!

Didi Onwu and Mfundo Mbanze are our show hosts and they will lead us on the Quest to find this year's Top 26 for the 2021 fellowship.

Didi, aka The Cultural Hybrid, is from Nigeria. With a passion for unearthing Africa's hidden gems, she brings her infectious energy and a unique curiosity for storytelling. South African born Mfundo, our trusty cinematographer, steps in front of the lens alongside Didi to show us what these very young entrepreneurs are capable of.

Together, they will embark on this Quest, uncover talent, celebrate stories, and have fun along the way.
