Applications are welcomed from eligible entrepreneurs from all African countries to apply for the Jack Ma/Alibaba Foundation Africa’s Business Heroes Prize Competition 2021. It is an entrepreneurship program targeted at Africans to assist them in scaling up their businesses.
Africa’s Business Heroes directly supports talented and promising African entrepreneurs through its namesake Prize competition. Each year the Prize selects ten “business heroes” from across Africa that compete for their share of USD 1.5 million in grant funding. During the competition, participants have also exclusive access to training, mentoring and learning programmes, as well as to a community of like-minded African business leaders.
The prize competition aims to identify, support and inspire the next generation of African entrepreneurs who are making a difference in their local communities, working to solve problems and building sustainable and inclusive economy for the future.
Africa’s Business Heroes (ABH) is the Jack Ma Foundation’s flagship philanthropic program in Africa to support entrepreneurs. Our mission is to showcase and grow local talent who are creating positive impact in their communities and beyond, and inspire a movement of African entrepreneurship. Over a ten-year period, the program will recognize 100 African entrepreneurs and provide grant funding, training programs, and broader support for the broad African entrepreneurial ecosystem.
