2019 Africa Netpreneur Prize: Five weeks left to application deadline

(Togo First) - Five weeks. That is how much time tech entrepreneurs from Togo and other African countries have left to apply for the 2019 Africa Netpreneur Prize Initiative, launched last March by the Jack Ma foundation.

Deadline of application is June 30 and the event will reward the continent’s ten best tech entrepreneurs of the year. Winners will share a $1 million grant funding equally.

Launched in 2018, the initiative has a budget of $10 million to be distributed over a 10-year period. Through the contest, Ma aims to support African tech entrepreneurs in their efforts to build a more sustainable and inclusive Africa for the future.

“What I can do, personally, through the Africa Netpreneur Prize Initiative, is to commit to give out $10 million over 10 years to help young entrepreneurs,” says Jack Ma, founder of giant tech company Alibaba.

Interested entrepreneurs must be from any of the 54 African countries and having founded a registered business in the African country in which they operate. Also, they must have been operational for at least three years and show earnings for these years. Their products or services must also be adapted to the continent’s needs.

Applications can be filled on the Netpreneur Africa website.
