From 2021, young leaders from the continent who would like to be part of the Choiseul 100 Africa ranking (to be disclosed in September) and the Choiseul Africa network are invited to apply. The application campaign is open between June 1st and July 7th 2021.
The reference ranking of young African leaders
Launched in 2014, the Choiseul 100 Africa is an annual study conducted independently by the Institut Choiseul that identifies and ranks the 100 young African leaders aged 40 and below who are playing or expected to play an important role in Africa’s development in the near future.
By honouring business and institutional leaders, entrepreneurs and innovative project leaders, the Choiseul 100 Africa aims to highlight the dynamism of the African decision-makers’ young generation and the renewal they em- body for the continent.
What’s new in 2021: the opening of online applications
In order to continue to be as close as possible to the territories, the Institut Choiseul is opening up this year to young African leaders the possibility of applying online on the Choiseul Africa to be part of the ranking.
The candidates selected by the selection committee will join the Choiseul Africa family, which today includes laureates and about 200 alumni (former laureates who have passed the 40-year limit) in 47 out of the 54 countries on the continent.
The application campaign is open between 1st June and 7th July 2021 for a publication of the ranking in September 2021.
Choiseul Africa, the initiative that highlights the excellence and diversity of the continent
Operating in 16 business sectors that underpin African growth, the Choiseul 100 Africa laureates represent the diversity and dynamism of a forward-looking continent.
Through the studies it publishes and the events it organises (Choiseul Africa Summit, Choiseul Africa Business Forum), the Institut Choiseul aims to bring together a large spectrum of visions about governance and development issues in Africa, but also to promote a new kind of business dialogue between the continent and Europe.
