The Tony Elumelu Foundation has launched a digital platform to connect entrepreneurs in Africa and beyond.
Launched in Lagos on Thursday at the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Forum 2018, TEFConnect is designed to connect entrepreneurs – mentors, investors, accelerators and incubators – all over the world, enabling them to learn, network, leverage business tools and more.
Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo and Kebbi State Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu were among those who joined TEF Founder Tony Elumelu, for the launch of the platform.
“Our objective is to connect entrepreneurs to three key things needed for success – money, market and business tools,” TEF said in a post on its website.
“The digital hub will convene the full entrepreneurial ecosystem across Africa and beyond including entrepreneurs, investors and the business community on one platform.
