The Tony Elumelu Foundation is the leading champion of entrepreneurship in Africa.

The Tony Elumelu Foundation was founded with the objective to empower women and men across our continent, catalysing economic growth, driving poverty eradication and ensuring job creation. We believe the private sector’s role is critical for Africa’s development and that the private sector must create both social and economic wealth.
Through the Foundation’s 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, we continue to implement our mission and vision across the African continent.
