The Tony Elumelu Foundation firmly believes that the private sector is the key to unlocking Africa’s economic potential.
Through its unique ability to provide funding, training, mentorship, and networking opportunities for young African entrepreneurs, the foundation has established a platform that catalyzes growth throughout the African continent.
Tony O. Elumelu who coined the term Africapitalism believes that African resources must be used to develop the African continent and that will lead to prosperity for all.
