The African Entrepreneurship Award is presenting 37 finalists from 22 countries across the continent, to compete during The Presidential Round. These 37 entrepreneurs will be asked to present their ideas and take live questions in a private pitch with the Presidential Jury. Before presenting, finalists will be coached individually by 7 African and Global coaches to prepare during the boot-camp, starting several days before their live presentation.
The Presidential Jury comprises of distinguished business leaders and entrepreneurs who have created and/or scaled businesses on five continents. The 37 finalists will present live to the Presidential Jury in Casablanca, Morocco, with travel and local housing sponsored by the Award. If they are unable to travel, they are still eligible to win and will be offered a time to present live via a video session to the Presidential Jury in Morocco.
The Final Award Ceremony will be on December 5, 2016, in Casablanca, Morocco. The winners of the $1 Million Dollars envelop will continue their journey of mentoring with a customized plan designed to help them plan, launch and scale their businesses.
