    [APPLY] Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Programme 2018

    As a continuation of its $100 million commitment to identify, train, mentor and fund 10,000 African entrepreneurs in 10 years, thereby creating 1,000,000 jobs and $10 billion in social and economic wealth, the Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) hereby announces the opening of applications for the fourth cycle of its entrepreneurship development programme, Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship programme (TEEP). Applications are invited from outstanding African entrepreneurs who have start-up or business ideas with high growth potentials.

    According to a statement, after three cycles in 2015, 2016, and 2017, TEEP – the only African-funded business development initiative of its kind – has received a total of 158,000 applications from African entrepreneurs in 107 countries across Africa, empowered approximately 3,000 businesses with a 12-week online training; world-class mentoring; access to TEF’s network of start-ups; and seed capital of $5,000.

    TEEP is open to citizens and legal residents of all African countries with businesses based in Africa, less than three years old, including new startups.

    “As an entrepreneur myself, I understand what it feels like to yearn for a lifeline, to hope for a ‘big break. In turn, I have set out to institutionalise luck with the Foundation and give back to the continent of Africa. I am pleased the Programme is already unleashing Africa’s entrepreneurs and driving economic transformation.”
    Tony Elumelu (Founder, Tony Elumelu Foundation)
