Welcome to The Africa Netpreneur Prize Initiative, A Jack Ma’s flagship entrepreneur program in Africa led by the Jack Ma Foundation.

Our mission is to identify and spotlight African entrepreneur heroes and their stories to inspire the continent and beyond. The Prize will host a grand finale pitch competition in Africa where ten finalists from across the continent will compete for a share of US$1 million in total grant prize money.

Make it to the grand finale and you’ll have your shot to pitch your story to Jack and the rest of the judges. The Prize will be fully inclusive. Entrepreneurs of any age, gender, and sector who are nationals from any 54 African countries are encouraged to apply.
