Are you an African under 30? Have you created jobs? 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.
