THE TONY ELUMELU ENTREPRENEURSHIP FORUM WILL BE THE LARGEST GATHERING OF AFRICAN ENTREPRENEURS IN THE WORLD

Over 1,300 African entrepreneurs, business leaders and policymakers are attending the 3rd Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Forum in Lagos this week.
This weekend, the most inclusive gathering of African experts in business, entrepreneurship and policy will descend to Lagos, Nigeria to attend the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Forum from October 13 to October 14.

In it’s third year, Africa’s largest philanthropy focused on supporting entrepreneurship will open the forum to non-TEF entrepreneurs and will allow subject matter experts from across the continent to attend, network, connect with investors and share knowledge.

“Since launching the TEF Entrepreneurship Programme – and committing $100 million to empowering 10,000 African entrepreneurs in a decade – we have unleashed our continent’s most potent development force – its entrepreneurs,” Tony O. Elumelu, founder of TEF, says in a press release. “In just 3 years, our 3,000 entrepreneurs have created tens of thousands of jobs and generated considerable wealth. On October 13 and 14, we invite the global entrepreneurship community to Lagos toward the realization of a New Africa, a thriving, self-reliant continent capable of replicating the results we have seen in our ground-breaking programme.”

Featuring speakers including Wale Ayeni of the International Finance Coporation, Stephen Tio Kauma of Afrexim Bank, Abdoulaye Mar Dieye of the UNDP, the two-day event will be full of plenary panels, masterclasses and sector specific networking opportunities focused on improving the enabling environment of African businesses.

Elumelu’s long-term investment through his foundation in empowering African entrepreneurs is indicative of his “Africapitalism” philosophy—which positions Africa’s private sector and it’s entrepreneurs as the innovators for social and economic development of the continent.
