Win $1m at the African Entrepreneurship Award

by | Jun 15, 2015

Are you an African citizen with a business idea that will create jobs and improve lives in Africa?
Will it improve education or the environment, or solve a problem that is uncharted?

That’s the only question the folks in charge of the African Entrepreneurship Award are asking. They are sponsored by the BCME Bank of Africa and they have a million dollars to give away to African entrepreneurs who are solely vested in the journey of creating jobs and improving African lives through technology in the aforementioned sectors. The African Entrepreneurship Award will help you start or grow your business to create jobs and impact Africa.

The proposition of the African Entrepreneurship Awards is this- Every entrepreneur needs more than money. You need mentors to come alongside you, advise you, ask hard questions, encourage you, comfort you, and help you persevere.

The folks at the African Entrepreneurship Award boast of 80+ mentors, all masters in their field. They partner with entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, technologists, and academics who are experienced in African entrepreneurial challenges to make this possible
