Vote your favourite entrepreneurs for the Forbes' 30 Under 30 list

It’s a new year and Mfonobong Nsehe, a writer for Forbes is looking to publish the annual rankings of the 30 Under 30: Africa’s Best Young Entrepreneurs. Now in its third year, the list is a sort of guide to the continent’s most noteworthy young entrepreneurs (usually unsung).

He is calling on all of us directly to help compile the list of Africa’s brightest and most ambitious young entrepreneurs, to avoid any bias.

I am asking you, the reader to nominate entrepreneurs (aged 30 and under) who are making the most dramatic impact in Africa today in manufacturing, technology, real estate, media & entertainment, financial services, agriculture, fashion and the service industry

The nominees must meet the following criteria:

  1. Be citizens of one of the 54 African countries.
  2. Their business(es) must be based in an African country.
  3. The entrepreneurs must have built businesses that employ at least 4 people
  4. The companies they have built should be generating revenues above $1 million, and be profitable (although if they are yet to break even, they must have good prospects for the near future.)

Nigerians have been featured fairly well on previous lists, from the Jobberman trio to Nairaland’s Oluwaseun Osewa. So, Mfonobong Nsehe seeks to identify more entrepreneurs like these, and I think we should all vote.

You can tweet him your nominations @MfonobongNsehe  or email him at on or before the 31st of January, 2015.
