Jack Ma capped a week-long tour in Africa with the awarding of the inaugural African Netpreneur Prize at a Shark Tank-like competition in Accra.  Nigerian Temie Giwa-Tubosun won the top prize and $250,000 but there’s no doubt that the big winner from all this was Jack Ma himself.

Now that Ma is no longer CEO of Alibaba, the company he founded that is now one of the world’s largest eCommerce platforms, he’s re-positioning himself to become the next high profile philanthropist with supporting African entrepreneurs and wildlife conservation as his focus.
