The Anzisha Prize Tour 2013 at Innovation Space Wed Feb 13th at 2pm!

The Anzisha Prize is a $75,000 youth entrepreneurship competition that looks for young African entrepreneurs, age 15-22. Finalists will win an all-expense paid trip to the African Leadership Academy campus near Johannesburg, South Africa to attend a weeklong entrepreneurship conference. Grand prize winners, selected from these finalists, will share $75,000 USD in cash prizes, courtesy of the MasterCard Foundation, to take their projects to the next level. This year, there will also be a special $10,000 award given to an Anzisha finalist with a renewable energy related project, courtesy of Silicon Valley Community Foundation Donor Circle for Africa.

Last year two Tanzanian Fellows made it into the Anzisha Fellow Network: David Mwendele (22) and Faisal Burhan (17). Maybe this year the overall winner will be Tanzanian?

They are now accepting applications for the 2013 Anzisha prize cycle at anzishaprize.org. Application deadline is 1 April, 2013. You can apply yourself, or nominate someone who you think should take part!

We will host an information session about the Anzisha Prize at the Innovation Space on Wednesday February 13th 2013 at 14.00-15.30hrs!
