The African Entrepreneurship Award offers $1 million to all eligible African entrepreneurs with an exisiting business or just an idea for one. The Award Journey is made up of 4 rounds of mentoring and starts by submitting an idea for Round 1.

Round 1: Business ideas most needed in the region

You will be asked questions about your business idea to get to know you and your idea’s relevance to the region. Once you submit your idea, Regional Mentors will provide specific feedback directly to you via the website on your idea’s potential to impact your region.

During Round 1, you must convince the Regional Mentors that you understand the needs in your region and that your idea meets those needs.

We will share the Regional Mentors’ overall ranking of your idea with you at the end of Round 1 (before opening of Round 2). If your idea ranks in the top of “Most Needed in Your Region,” we will notify you that you are progressing to Round 2, “Most Likely to Succeed Across Africa.”
