Meet the 1,000 entrepreneurs selected by the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Program(TEEP)

by | Mar 22, 2016

In January, we brought you news of applications for the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Program(TEEP) which is designed for startups based in Africa. Applications just closed on the 1st of March 2016.

There is good news as the list of the 1,ooo successful entrepreneur has been released according to a tweet from the official account of the Tony Elumelu Foundation.

According to the Tony Elumelu Foundation, 45,000 African entrepreneurs applied for this year’s edition of TEEP and only 1,000 made the final cut. Agriculture, education, retail, manufacturing, ICT and fashion were the most popular sectors that had applications sent in with 32% of overall applicants being women.

Same as last year, the TEEP 2016 list is dominated by Nigerian finalists as they take up more than half of the list.  This is a good sign that Nigeria is doing something right in terms of entrepreneurial pursuits.

The list of names is a lengthy one that would not be accommodated in the post, so if you did apply for TEEP 2016 or know anybody that applied, click here to see a full list of the names and share with your friends that applied.

Do share the good news with us if you did make the cut. Goodluck.
