Tony O. Elumelu has congratulated the African Development Bank (AfDB) President Akinwumi Adesina, on  his commitment to African entrepreneurship, with the disbursement of $2.5 million  to the AfDB-sponsored beneficiaries of the 2019 TEF Entrepreneurship Programme.

The cash was released, with the remainder expected to be disbursed to the entrepreneurs in first quarter of 2020.

The AfDB commitment follows the recent $8.5 million disbursement from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to 2,648 entrepreneurs in the Sahel region and Africa, and further accelerates the empowerment generated by the Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF).

Last year, the Foundation  increased the scale and reach of it impact, with the number of beneficiaries of its flagship Entrepreneurship Programme rising from its annual commitment of 1,000, to 5,150, in collaboration with global and African partners.

With its commitment to strengthen small and medium-sized enterprises and develop young entrepreneurs, AfDB joined the growing list of global development institutions benefiting from the TEF’s unique model of identifying, training, mentoring and funding entrepreneurs and start-ups across Africa. The partnership demonstrates the implementation of the AfDB’s 10-year “Jobs for Youth in Africa” strategy, launched in 2016, to support the creation of 25 million meaningful jobs across the continent.

The partnership illustrates TEF’s willingness to share its infrastructure and know-how, with others who share the mission to empower young African entrepreneurs and TEF’s goal of creating millions of jobs, as well as generating billions in revenue, to catalyse economic growth across the continent.

The Foundation is currently accepting applications to the 2020 cohort of its flagship Entrepreneurship Programme on, Africa’s digital hub for entrepreneurs.
