Togolese women among Top 50 finalists for the 2019 Africa Netpreneur Prize

(Togo First) - Over the fifty finalists selected for the 2019 Africa Netpreneur Prize initiative, two Togolose women were selected.

They are namely, Aimée Abra Tenu Lawani, promoter of the Kari Kari soap, and Ahoefa Allah-Assogba, founder of Togossime, an e-commerce platform that deals in made-in-Togo products.

The next step, to get closer to winning the prize, for the two entrepreneurs is to be among the top 10 finalists. The winning “netpreneur” will get a $1 million grant, according to a statement relased by the Jack Ma foundation. The nine other finalists will also get a grant, of a lesser amount, and will have access to the community of African netpreneurs, benefiting from their expertise and learn about the best practices prevailing in this community.

The Africa Netpreneur Initiative is led by the Jack Ma foundation and its African partner Nailab, a Kenya-based business incubator founded by Kenyan Sam Gichuru. By 2030, the Jack Ma foundation should, under this program, grant $10 million to 100 young African entrepreneurs and women.

For this edition, about 10,000 applications were submitted.
