I am one of the fellow citizens Tony Elumelu has mentored. I want to thank you for your keynote in Wharton Business School 6 years ago and also the access you have provided over the years. After that talk which I chronicled, I made the decision to move into business.
On May 28, 2015, I joined you for a dinner in Transcorp Hotel Abuja. I crashed into your dinner and asked for your 5 minutes. I had flown home to get a sense of the new direction of govt to help update my company strategy. You cleared some of the confusions.
I formed a new subsidiary, a company that makes sensors using artificial intelligence to helps farmers improve yields by telling them what, how and when to farm. The largest fertilizer maker in the world awarded it the AgTech Startup of the Year two months ago.
Today, the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria awarded us a major contract to assist its farmers in Nigeria. Government is supporting them.
On behalf of my family and all the young people who work in my firms, I sincerely want to thank you for your kindness, and inspirational devotion to build a better Africa. Thank you, Sir.
Selection Committe Member, Prof. Ndubuisi,
I am very happy to learn that I am one of the 1000 selected candidates for 2017 class. My joy to be part of this powerful program can not be emphasized
I am so grateful for your trust and belief that I can contribute to the growth of African economy
The process was challenging and logical and I see that as positive improvement for entrepreneurs.
The foundation offered me a stepping stone to thrive further. As I speak now, am involved in social entrepreneurship ventures where I'm inspiring, offering mentorship and skills training to more than 1000 youth in my community. This was only made possible through inspiration and training from the Tony Elumelu Foundation not forgetting the boost from the seed capital
The experience was great, interesting and thought provoking! It gave me better business direction, have a definite business plan, strategy and focus! Thank you, TEF
The TEF Alumni network is a priceless tool with the potential of making any average business an instant success and I am proud to be a member.
I submitted my application! I must say every section is worth the time and concentration I put into it. Answering all questions in regards to one's aspirations of being an Entrepreneur is inspiring and educating. An experience I'll relish forever.
You have no idea of what I felt after receiving my seed capital alert today. I'm simply humbled.
Filling out the form was quite tasking, but it was such a good experience
