Applications for the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Programme are still open

by | Jan 28, 2015

It’s not easy to take an idea and work on it, not to mention writing it out and/or dropping everything to work on this idea. You’d need help.

And so, the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Programme is calling on entrepreneurs across Africa to submit their business ideas for a chance to get $10, 000 dollars in equity-free funding. TEEP wants to help entrepreneurs bring their ideas to life and encourage the launch of small businesses in Nigeria.

Figure out what you want to call your business, plan how many employees you will have, how much revenue you will generate and how much market potential there is for your product/service. Don’t cringe at the difficulty in answering questions about your idea, relish the chance to bring it to reality and you are on your way from Idea to IPO.

So if you have an idea, go ahead and apply.

Applications have been open since January 1, 2015 and will be until the 31st of March 2015.
