Travel Fellowships provide financial support to journalists and photojournalists affiliated with African national or global media houses to attend the 2017 Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Forum holding October 13-15, 2017.
The TEF Entrepreneurship Forum 2017 will be the largest gathering of African entrepreneurs and other ecosystem stakeholders from across the continent. It will be a showcase of the innovation and entrepreneurial potential that exists in Africa and has the potential to be the debut of the next generation of African business titans onto the global stage.
The TEF Entrepreneurship Forum is held over three days and is the physical gathering of the 1,000 Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurs (2017) from 54 African countries in Lagos, Nigeria. This dynamic platform allows the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurs to form networks, share knowledge, build cross border business partnerships, and connect with investors, link with corporate supply chains, influence policy makers and business leaders participating in the Forum.
The TEF Entrepreneurship Forum Travel Fellowship provides 50 fellowships that cover travel, accommodation, and a per diem. TEF will handle travel arrangements, accommodation and assist with visas*.
