A newsletter from the Tony Elumelu Foundation on organizing Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Forum.
We are pleased to inform you that the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Forum 2016, will hold in Lagos, Nigeria from Thursday 27- Saturday 29, October 2016.
The TEF Forum is an annual gathering of selected entrepreneurs and key stakeholders within the African entrepreneurial ecosystem. This year we host our second class of 1,000 emerging entrepreneurs from 54 countries in Africa to forge partnerships, share insights and receive foundational information to help their businesses thrive.
The TEF Forum is the premier international platform for African entrepreneurs to form business partnerships with Pan-African and global business leaders, policy makers and investors. It will promote continent-wide integration by creating a Pan-African entrepreneurship ecosystem that fosters creativity, innovation, collaboration and trade among entrepreneurs all across Africa.
The TEF Forum will convene African and global leaders to engage with African entrepreneurs who are developing innovative entrepreneurial solutions to Africa’s economic challenges and change the African narrative. Through this forum, policy makers and the international development community will recognise and embrace entrepreneurship, as the new model for the development of Africa and beyond, as we shape the local, national, regional and global agenda for the growth of African entrepreneurship through public and private cooperation.
It is the hallmark of the TEF Entrepreneurship Programme, our 10-year, $100 million commitment to identifying, training and funding 10,000 African entrepreneurs.
Please do save the date. A formal invitation will follow.
