TEF reveals entrepreneurs for its 2019 edition tomorrow.
The Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) will announce the selected applicants for the 2019 edition of its flagship entrepreneurship programme on March 22, 2019.

Every year, TEF, the leading African philanthropy committed to empowering African entrepreneurs, opens its application portal to African entrepreneurs, with businesses of less than three years old.
Through its $100 million entrepreneurship programme, the foundation empowers 1,000 entrepreneurs annually, who receive $5,000 in non-refundable seed capital, access to mentors, a 12-week training programme and opportunities to promote their businesses to a global audience.
All applicants receive access to TEFConnect, Africa’s digital entrepreneurial hub, which provides access to networks, training, further capital sources and business opportunities.
The selection announcement will also feature a Nigerian TEF Alumni Meet up, as well as an interactive dialogue with the founder, Tony Elumelu.
