at the Tony Elumelu Foundation 2016 Forum

As confirmed in the image above, I became a Tony Elumelu Foundation Alumni 4 years ago after applying and successfully went through the training and forum and then finally got my seed funding of $5000 which helped me secure my farmland. And between then and 2019, I have assisted over 50 entrepreneurs through my articles to successfully apply and join the TEF Alumni network.

So, as opposed to some comments on social media about TEF programme not been real with their selection. I’m here to tell you that the programme is valid and the selection process is legit. I’m a proof incase you need one.

As an Alumni, you have plenty other opportunities including attending Mr. Tony’s birthday like I did

This particular post is to help you apply successfully for the 2021 TEF application and get your own chance of accessing a life changing opportunity of $5000 which is non-refundable (free money), impactul training and a million dollar worth of networks.
