The fierce selection process involved a comprehensive evaluation of 320 stories from a wide array of media sources across the African continent published since the first ABH edition in 2019 to date.

Africa’s Business Heroes (ABH) Prize Competition is a philanthropic programme sponsored by the Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Philanthropy to support and inspire African entrepreneurs.
