Tanzania Private sector Foundation (TPSF) in cooperation with African Leadership Academy (ALA) of South Africa is introducing Anzisha Prize Award to Tanzania young entrepreneurs.

This program is open to all African young entrepreneurs of the age between 15- 22 years who are running business but they lack capital to expand their businesses.

The Anzisha Prize Award was established by African Leadership Academy for the aim of empowering young entrepreneurs who have innovative business ideas, which will help in solving social and economic challenges.

Africa is the world’s youngest continent, with over 600 million people under the age of 25. And the Anzisha Prize is a growing social impact program focused entirely on accelerating the entry of millions of young Africans into viable and exciting entrepreneurship opportunities within high-growth economic sectors.

Each year, 12 finalists win a two-week trip to South Africa for a learning experience of a lifetime at the African Leadership Academy, and share over US$75,000 in cash funding. At a Gala Dinner, the grand prizewinner is announced and receives $25,000 with which to grow their business.

The Anzisha Prize is one of the most accessible and inclusive pan-African opportunities for youth from any background.

Application forms and information are available in English, French, Portuguese and Arabic, and the Anzisha Prize Tour team will visit key hubs and engage local media in every region.

The top 12 finalist for Anzisha Prize Award of 2015 have been selected among more than 500 applicants, among them there are two Tanzanians qualified for the finalist Sirjeff Dennis who ventured into Agriculture-Poultry Sector and George Mtemahanji who ventured into Energy Sector.

TPSF is among over 25 country partner organizations, which are available to assist applicants in their countries.

Application will be open from 15th March-15th April, 2016- We encourage all eligible youths to apply.
