Posted: Friday 17 September 10, 2.41pm GMT

Citi has joined forces with Africa Investor to sponsor the Sukuma Afrika Young Entrepreneur's MDGs Competition in a ceremony which formed part of a high-level working lunch on investing in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) at the New York Stock Exchange on Friday 17th September.

This awards coincided with the UN General Assembly week, which is focusing on the acceleration of the attainment of the MDGs, which encourages young entrepreneurs to engage in for-profit ventures with a social angle that contributes to one of the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) relating to poverty and hunger; education; gender equality; health; or the environment. The competition highlights the outstanding efforts of the winners and connects them to mentors who can help them expand their businesses.

The 10 finalists were joined by 150 business and government leaders, senior United Nations representatives and the US institutional investment community at the awards ceremony.
