The second edition of Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Forum has been slated for October 2016 in Lagos, Nigeria.
The forum is the largest annual gathering of African entrepreneurs, where over 1,000 entrepreneurs meet with business leaders, established entrepreneurs and policymakers to forge partnerships, share insights and fashion Africa-made solutions to accelerate the transformation of Africa, the foundation media team stated in a release.
The gathering is the culmination of the TEF Entrepreneurship Programme (TEEP), Elumelu’s $100 million commitment to identifying, training, mentoring and empowering 10,000 African entrepreneurs over 10 years.
“The 2016 edition of EEF will feature interactive learning sessions between the entrepreneurs on one hand and thought leaders, investors and veteran entrepreneurs on the other. There will also be exhibitions and displays by entrepreneurs from all across Africa, supported by third party service providers targeting SMEs. It will be a gathering of the entire entrepreneurship ecosystem,” the media team added.
