Any person remotely business-minded knows that the name Jack Ma, Executive Chairman of the Alibaba Group, is instantly synonymous with entrepreneurial royalty. He’s living proof that starting, scaling and sustaining a business is one of – if not the – toughest jobs in the world. The journey is often riddled with frustrations, challenges and failures. And that’s before you’ve even cashed your first pay cheque.
Therefore, I reckon Ma created a fantastic philanthropic initiative called the Africa Netpreneur Prize Initiative (ANPI) worth US$10 million, which focuses on supporting the continent’s startups.
Key activities and dates for the prize are:
Applications Launch: 27th March 2019
Deadline for applications: 30th June 2019
Announcement of the top 50 regional finalists: August 2019
Announcement of the final 10 finalists: October 2019
Grand Finale pitch event: November 2019
