On March 22, 2024, history will be made as the Tony Elumelu Foundation, the leading philanthropy empowering young African entrepreneurs from all 54 African countries, announces the selected entrepreneurs for the 10th year of the 10-year TEF Entrepreneurship Programme. The Tony Elumelu Foundation is empowering a new generation of African entrepreneurs, driving poverty eradication, catalysing job creation across all 54 African countries, and ensuring inclusive economic empowerment.Since the launch of the TEF Entrepreneurship Programme in 2015, the Foundation has trained over 1.5 million young Africans on its digital hub, TEFConnect, and disbursed nearly US$ 100 million in direct funding to over 19,000 African women and men, who have collectively created over 400,000 direct and indirect jobs.The Foundation’s mission is rooted in Africapitalism, which positions the private sector and, most importantly, entrepreneurs as the catalyst for the social and economic development of the African continent.

We would be honoured to mark this special milestone with you virtually through a dedicated live stream.

The event is finished.
