About Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF).

The Tony Elumelu Foundation is the leading champion of entrepreneurship in Africa. Our objective is to empower women and men across our continent, catalysing economic growth, driving poverty eradication and ensuring job creation. Founded by African investor and philanthropist, Tony O. Elumelu, in 2010, our mission is implemented through our programmes, research, communities, advocacy and convenings, including the annual TEF Forum, the largest gathering of entrepreneurs in Africa, and TEFConnect, Africa’s digital hub for entrepreneurs. With a $100 million commitment to empower 10,000 Africans over 10 years, the Tony Elumelu Foundation has trained, mentored, and funded over 9,000 young African entrepreneurs across 54 African countries through its entrepreneurship programmes, and provides capacity-building support, advisory and market linkages to over 1million Africans through its digital networking platform, TEFConnect. Whilst self-funded, the Foundation is increasingly carrying out partnership interventions with leading international institutions, such as the EU, the UNDP and the Red Cross, which permits increased impact and the need to work with external stakeholders in relation to impact measurement.
