The Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Forum will take place in Lagos, Nigeria on October 27-29, bringing together selected entrepreneurs from across the continent.
The forum is held as part of the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Programme, which was launched in December 2014 by the Tony Elumelu Foundation with the target of creating one million new jobs and US$10 billion in additional revenues over the next 10 years.
This year the foundation is hosting its second class of 1,000 emerging entrepreneurs from 54 countries in Africa at the forum to forge partnerships, share insights and receive foundational information to help their businesses thrive.
“The TEF Forum is an annual gathering of selected entrepreneurs and key stakeholders within the African entrepreneurial ecosystem,” the foundation said.
“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.”
