Are you an African Business Hero?
CALLING ALL HEROES & CHANGE-MAKERS! Africa’s Business Heroes Are Change-Makers That Believe in the Power of Entrepreneurship.
The Jack Ma Foundation has approached us to invite you to take part in the 2021 Africa’s Business Heroes Competition.
Open to African entrepreneurs of all ages, from all sectors, and across all 54 African countries, the ‘Africa’s Business Heroes’ competition aims to reach as many promising entrepreneurs as possible.
The competition is geared towards entrepreneurs that are post-idea stage and have a 3-year track record. It will award a pool of $1.5 million in grant money to ten finalists who are working to solve critical issues in their local communities and who demonstrate core values such as resilience, innovation, and leadership. The ten finalists will also have the opportunity to pitch to Jack Ma and other global business icons in a competition show that will be broadcasted online and across the continent, later this year.
Closing date to enter: 7 June 2021
