[Apply] Jack Ma Africa Netpreneur Prize Due June 30

Entry deadline for Africa Netpreneur Prize Initiative is 30 June

The call for entries for the Africa Netpreneur Prize Initiative (ANPI) will be closing on 30 June. That is about a week for African entrepreneurs to submit their businesses for the chance to pitch Jack Ma and win a share of the USD1 million prize at the grand finale event in November 2019.

The ANPI is a flagship initiative for the Jack Ma Foundation in Africa. Jack Ma decided to create the prize after his first trip to Africa in July 2017 when he was inspired by the energy and entrepreneurial potential of the young people he met. The competition is open to entrepreneurs from across all countries of Africa to apply; and from all industries, including traditional and tech. It puts a special focus on small enterprises, female entrepreneurs, and those doing work to improve local communities.
