The Tony Elumelu Foundation is calling for proposals from exceptional film production companies to create an exciting TV commercial that highlights the impact of the Tony Elumelu Foundation, with emphasis on its flagship Entrepreneurs programme.
The Tony Elumelu Foundation is the leading philanthropy empowering a new generation of African entrepreneurs that is driving poverty eradication, catalyzing job creation, and ensuring women’s economic inclusion in all 54 African countries.
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 USD$100 million in direct funding to 18,000 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.
The robust ability of the Foundation to impact the lives of young African entrepreneurs across geographies and sectors has been very visible, and has resulted in the emergence of strategic partnerships with the European Union (EU), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the United States Government via the United States African Development Foundation (USADF), The Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS), The French Development Agency (AFD), The German Development Finance Institution (DEG), The German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ), The African Development Bank (AfDB), and Google, with bespoke programmes including focus on women empowerment and sustainable growth in fragile states.
