African Leadership Academy Category: Research


Maritz Africa Intelligence produced the Anzisha Youth Entrepreneurship Survey 2016 for the African Leadership Academy, host of The Anzisha Prize which seeks to award young entrepreneurs who have developed and implemented innovative solutions to social challenges or started successful businesses within their communities.


The goal of the Survey was to provide a snapshot into the realities facing young entrepreneurs in Africa. It focuses on five areas of operating a business, namely (1) Growth, (2) Sales and marketing, (3) Human resources, (4) Funding and (5) Support. It is intended that stakeholders such as policy makers, support organisations, and entrepreneurs themselves will benefit from these insights. We were responsible for all aspects of the publication, including data collection and interpretation, writing, design and distribution.
