“As an entrepreneur myself, I understand what it feels like to yearn for a lifeline, to hope for a ‘big break. In turn, I have set out to institutionalise luck with the Foundation and give back to the continent of Africa. I am pleased the Programme is already unleashing Africa’s entrepreneurs and driving economic transformation,” said TEF Founder, Tony O. Elumelu, CON.

The Programme aims to identify, train, mentor and fund 10,000 African entrepreneurs in 10 years (1000, each year) creating 1,000,000 jobs and $10 billion in social and economic wealth. Since launch, the Programme has received 158,000 applications from African entrepreneurs in 107 countries, including every nation of Africa.
