The Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Programme (TEEP) owned by the Nigerian philanthropist and billionaire, Tony Elumelu, is looking for mentors to function within its startup programme upon inauguration.
Interested mentors will be selected based on their qualification and enlisted to join the existing pool of mentors. The foundation is especially looking for experienced business professionals, executives, and entrepreneurs with a desire to help others grow.
The TEEP foundation was launched in January 2015, and looks to identify and support the growth of 1000 African owned business anually. It hopes to achieve this with a US$100-million philanthropic programme, which includes a highly designed framework of training, mentoring, funding, and networking for these startups.
Ensuring the objective of the programme remains on course, TEEP requires more mentors that would benefit from collaborate teaching and opportunities, as well improving their own skills and making new contact.
