French President has been scheduled to pay an august visit to Tony Elumelu Foundation in Lagos, Nigeria. During his historic visit to Lagos this week, President Emmanuel Macron will engage with nearly 2,000 Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) alumni during an exclusive interactive session.
The event will be hosted and moderated by our Founder Tony O. Elumelu, CONand will give our entrepreneurs a platform to closely engage the President and learn from his experience as one of the youngest Heads of State in recent times -all while networking and forging partnerships with French and African business leaders and policymakers in attendance.
The collaboration between the French President and our Foundation is a result of President Macron’s recognition that African entrepreneurs are the key to Africa’s economic transformation and his desire to connect with and elevate the voices of future leaders said Programme Officer, TEF.
How better to reach the most catalytic young minds in Africa than through TEF, which for the last four years has built a network of hundreds of thousands of Africa’s brightest young entrepreneurial minds, she added.
