The ANPI is a prize competition founded by the Jack Ma Foundation that will award $10 million and recognise 100 African entrepreneurs over the next 10 years.

The Prize aims to "support and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs who are building a more sustainable and inclusive economy for the future".

ANPI is open to African entrepreneurs from all countries, sectors and age groups.

Every year, 10 finalists will be selected to compete in a finale pitch competition that will be broadcast across the continent.

All ten finalists will gain access to the Netpreneur community of African business leaders to leverage the community’s shared expertise, best practice and resources.

Alibaba Group Executive Chairman Jack Ma first created the Africa Netpreneur Prize Initiative after he made his first trip to Africa in July 2017 and was inspired by the energy and entrepreneurial potential of the young people he met.

Applications will be opened until July 30th. You can visit the website to apply.
