Two Nigerians among finalists for $25,000 Anzisha Prize for young African entrepreneurs

Two Nigerians, Abdulwaheed Alayande and Emmanuel Okon made the cut among 20 finalists to contend for the $25,000 Anzisha Prize for young African Entrepreneurs.

Over 500 budding African entrepreneurs applied for the award, across Africa. The winner will be announced at the ninth Anzisha Prize Forum on 22 October in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Alayande is the founder of TREP LABS, an enterprise offering a product called REALDRIP, which is an infusion meter that makes blood transfusion and drip treatment simpler and safer. Okon founded Vmedkit – a health company that focuses on alleviating mental illnesses using virtual reality technology.

The Anzisha Prize, an African Leadership Academy and Mastercard Foundation partnership, is dedicated to identifying, supporting and celebrating young African entrepreneurs between the ages of 15-22 on the continent whose ideas, ventures and businesses harness the power to redefine and reimagine Africa’s growth trajectory.
