35 Innovators under 35 to Watch in French-Speaking Countries in 2016


The Francophonie 35 under 35 Youth Prize intends to annually recognize 35 French-speaking Innovators aged 18 to 35 who have made outstanding achievements.

The Prize represents a pioneering Initiative in the French-Speaking Africa and the French-speaking world aimed at highlighting some of the best innovations in a zone populated by 900 million persons spread throughout five continents.

Selected by a jury of 80 personalities from the Francophone space and out of 200 entries from 26 countries (from France to Mali and as far as Vietnam), these 35 young innovators are changing lives. They will be rewarded during an Awards Ceremony on October 29th, 2016 in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

The Awards Ceremony will also designate among the 35 innovators “The Young Francophone Personality of the Year” and “The Youth Female Francophone Initiative of the Year”.
