TEF and UNDP to empower 100,000 additional African entrepreneurs

The Tony Elumelu Foundation since 2015 has been on a ten-year journey to empower 10,000 African entrepreneurs – 1,000 entrepreneurs each year – providing them with training, mentoring and seed capital for their business, all built on the ‘Africapitalism’ philosophy propounded by Tony Elumelu.

Following a recent partnership with UNDP, the Tony Elumelu Foundation is set to empower 100,000 additional entrepreneurs in 7 Sahel African countries over a 10-year period.

Starting this July, applications open for African entrepreneurs residing in the following countries: Nigeria (Northern), Niger, Chad, Cameroun, Mauritania, Mali and Burkina Faso.

With this partnership, the Tony Elumelu Foundation gives hope to the thousands of African entrepreneurs who have not been selected for its TEF Entrepreneurship Programme.
