The Search Is On For Africa’s Youngest Entrepreneurs

By Stella WaAfrika



Will you be one of the 12 youngest entrepreneurs?

The spirit of entrepreneurship continues to grow on the continent especially among young people. We can't help but love the new wave of ambitious young Africans, who not only dare to dream but live the dream itself through entrepreneurship.

I'm an avid believer in entrepreneurship; with it we can never go wrong. We need more job makers as opposed to job seekers.

Each year, the Anzisha Prize celebrates innovative young African entrepreneurs and this year is no different.
Application details are as follows:

Eligibility

- You must be between the ages of 15 and 22 years old.
- Your business or project must be up and running. The Anzisha Prize is not for great ideas or business plans – you must have already started, and be able to prove it!
- Your business, invention or social project can be in any field or industry (science and technology, civil society, arts and culture, sports, etc.). Any kind of venture is welcome to apply.
- Groups or teams can apply (for example, maybe you have 2 or 3 co-founders who started your business or project together), however you must choose one person to apply for the prize, on behalf of the group. This individual must be one of the founding members.


Your business or project will be judged on the following 4 criteria:- Impact: Does your venture have a demonstrated, measurable and positive social and economic impact.
- Ingenuity: Have you taken a new or better approach to a pressing problem or business opportunity within your community.
- Scalability: Does your business or social project have the potential to grow or be replicated with support and investment.
- Leadership Potential: Do you have the qualities to be a role model for Africa’s youth.

Prize: $75,000

Application Deadline: 15 April 2015
