Africa is the second fastest growing region in the world. Multiple indicators suggest that Africa has entered a cycle of strong economic growth that will match that experienced by Asia over the past decades. Global investors and multinationals are positioning themselves to identify the “next big thing” across Africa in greater depth.
How do you know which company or organisation to invest your trust in — let alone your venture capital? Before they’ll even look at another company, today’s business decision-makers and investors require a solid reputation with a proven ability to deliver.
Designed to promote businesses with a proven ability to deliver and identify the next big opportunity from African entrepreneurs, the Africa 1st Award acknowledges excellence, innovation, leadership, entrepreneurship, African venture of the year, sustainability, investment and customer engagement. The Award entertains and celebrates Africa’s thinkers and doers!
