Business plan and Grant writing training for African entrepreneurs.

Dear Entrepreneurs,

Readers are leaders, before you register for this training, please read through these instructions word to word as we will only contact people who adhere to all instructions below.

Welcome to the 2020 Entrepreneurship business plan and Grant writing training for African entrepreneurs.

The sole aim of this training is to help participants learn how to form a winning business idea, write a business plan and pitch to win grants like the Tony Elumelu foundation Grant worth USD5, 000.

At the end of the day, we expect participants to apply to the ongoing Tony Elumelu Foundation USD5, 000 Grant Competition and win.

Every year the Tony Elumelu Foundation gives a grant of 5000USD of the equivalence (#1,525,000) to entrepreneurs with innovative business ideas.

Unlike previous editions, the Tony Elumelu Foundation has restructured the 2020 application.

During previous years, all you need to win was to apply with an innovative idea and if shortlisted, you will receive training and funding.

But for the 2020 Tony Elumelu Foundation application, there are now four stages

Stage 1: Here you submit your idea and answer accompanying questions.

Stage2: You take a personality test online to ascertain the kind of person you are and if your personality suits the business you are pitching.

Stage3: Successful candidates are shortlisted for an online 8 weeks training. Note that this training does not guarantee seed funding. As a matter of fact, more than half of applicants in their thousands will be shortlisted to go through the training. So being part of the training will just be a step of the application process.

Stage4: Candidates who did well in the online training will be invited for the physical pitching. This stage is the last stage of the application. There will be a pitching event in your chosen city.

After the pitching, there will be a final shortlist of participants to receive seed funding of 5,000 USD.

Here is how we can help you submit a competitive application

We have conducted this particular training for over 1000 entrepreneurs since 2017 and we have had a lot of them win the seed capital.
