FORBES AFRICA is on the hunt for Africans under the age of 30, who are building brands, creating jobs and representing and transforming the continent, to join the Under 30 community for 2019.
Each year, FORBES AFRICA looks for resilient self-starters, innovators, entrepreneurs and disruptors who have the acumen to stay the course in their chosen field, come what may.
Past honorees include Kwesta, Nomzamo Mbatha, Ink Eze, Isaya Yunge, Jokate Mwegelo, Yannick Nzonde, Gilbert Eugene Peters, Yemi Alade, Vere Shaba, Kevin Lubega, Davido, Rivo Mhlari, Nasty C and Wiz Kid.
“2019 will be the fifth anniversary of the FORBES AFRICA Under 30 list. Every year, there emerges, in the continent of a billion-plus people, young luminaries who are blazing a trail to the finish line, and the idea of the list is to unearth and uncover them on their way up,” says FORBES AFRICA’s Managing Editor, Methil Renuka.
In addition to the three categories – Creatives, Technology and Business in 2018, this year, FORBES AFRICA introduces a new category — Sports.
“Leaders are also born in the world of sport. It requires grit and determination to be a game-changer and they definitely need to be celebrated early,” says Renuka.
If you think you have what it takes to be on this year’s list or know an entrepreneur, creative, technology entrepreneur or sports star under 30 with a proven track-record on the continent – introduce them to FORBES AFRICA by submitting your nomination.
Nominations close on 15 February 2019.
