As part of its bid to expand the impact of its entrepreneurial program and domacratize growth opportunity for African entrepreneurs, the Tony Elumelu Foundation at the just concluded TEFforum2018 launched the TEF Connect which emerges as Africa’s largest digital platform connecting African entrepreneurs to opportunities within and beyond Africa.
The TEF Connect was launched by the President of Ghana, H.E Nana Akufo-Addo assisted by Governors of Kebbi and Bauchi States of Nigeria, Senator Abubakar Atiku Bagudu and Alh. Mohammed Abdulahi Abubakar; founder of the Tony Elumelu Foundation and Chairman of Heirs Holdings, UBA Plc. and Transcorp Plc., Tony O. Elumelu CON; CEO of Avon Medicals and Gavi Champion for Immunization, Dr. Awele Elumelu and CEO of the Tony Elumelu Foundation, Parminder Vir OBE among other very distinguished personalities from within and outside Africa.
TEF Connect is a comprehensive digital solution for all players in the entrepreneurship ecosystem from the policy makers to the entrepreneurs, incubators, investors, academia and even international development institutions seeking to promote entrepreneurship in Africa.
The platform connects users to information, networks and services/updates relevant to the development of entrepreneurship especially entrepreneurship events and opportunities.
Users are also able to access business development tools such as business plan generators, business simulators, financial planning calculators, business management templates etc.
TEF Connect equally provides entrepreneurs the platform to connect with other entrepreneurs across Africa and beyond, establish cross border business relationships and access markets and business development opportunities in other parts of Africa.
Above all, the TEF Connect provides African entrepreneurs access to the Annual Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Program Application form as well as world class entrepreneurship development toolkit and also connects them to global business mentors and partnerships.
Indeed, the TEF Connect platform ensures that African entrepreneurs who do not have the opportunity of being part of the annual Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Program are not denied access to all the information they require to become successful world class entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs’ Square now brings to you a detailed guide on how to access the TEF Connect platform.
On behalf of the team at Entrepreneurs’ Square, I say a very big thank you to Tony O. Elumelu CON as well as the entire Tony Elumelu Foundation team for inspiring greatness among African entrepreneurs.
