228 Ugandans to benefit from Tony Elumelu fund

KAMPALA- A total of 228 Ugandans are among about 3,000 people set to benefit from the 2019 Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Fund.
The number is more than twice those who benefited from the fund last year.

Uganda registered the second highest number of beneficiaries after Nigeria, which has more than 1,000 recipients.

Ms Jackie Tumuhaire, the head of marketing and corporate communications at United Bank for Africa Uganda, which manages the Fund, said more Ugandans showed interest and submit strong proposals.

She also said UBA Uganda always helps the applicants through the application process to ensure that they are successful.
“We usually have free training for applicants to guide them on the application process – we had one this year, which I think is a reason for the high number,” Ms Tumuhaire.

A total of 3,050 African entrepreneurs drawn from all 54 African countries were this year selected to join the 5th cycle of the $100 million TEF Entrepreneurship Programme.

This year, more than 216,000 applications were received, an increase from last year’s 151,000. Nearly 90,000 were submitted by female entrepreneurs, an increase of 45 per cent, illustrating the Foundation’s strategy to achieve greater gender balance.
The selected entrepreneurs will each receive non-refundable $5,000 of seed capital, access to mentors, and a 12-week business training programme.
