Elumelu Foundation Announces 2024 Entrepreneurship Programme Beneficiaries 

350

The Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF), the leading philanthropy empowering African entrepreneurs, will Friday, March 22, announce another batch of 1,200 African entrepreneurs across 54 African countries as beneficiaries of the 2024 edition of its flagship Entrepreneurship Programme.

The new beneficiaries will become the 10th cohort of the decade-long TEF Entrepreneurship Programme.

The Tony Elumelu Foundation has consistently demonstrated its belief in the potential of young Africans to transform the African continent. This conviction has led to its transformative impact – thousands of young men and women entrepreneurs across all 54 African countries have been empowered through its flagship Entrepreneurship Programme.

The beneficiaries have received world-class business training, mentorship, coaching, and funding, in addition to lifelong access to the prestigious TEF Alumni Network.

To date, the Foundation has disbursed US$100,000,000 directly into the hands of young African entrepreneurs, who have, in turn, created over 400,000 direct and indirect jobs, contributing significantly to Africa’s economic growth and development.

The Foundation has also provided capacity building support, advisory services, and market linkages to over 1.5 million Africans through its digital entrepreneurship-support platform, TEFConnect.

The upcoming announcement reaffirms the Tony Elumelu Foundation’s commitment to supporting entrepreneurship as a catalyst for driving poverty eradication, catalysing job creation across all 54 African countries, and increasing women economic empowerment.

TEF, launched in 2015 to empower a new generation of African entrepreneurs, is driving poverty eradication, catalysing job creation across all 54 African countries, and increasing women economic empowerment.

The Programme since its launch has trained over 1.5 million young Africans on its digital hub, TEFConnect, and disbursed over USD$100 million in direct funding to 20,000 young 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.
