The goal is to create 10,000 businesses that can generate 1,000,000 new jobs and contribute at least $10 billion in annual revenues to the African economy.
Who Can Apply?
The programme is open to all citizens (18 and above) and legal residents of all 54 African countries with businesses that operate in Africa.
How Can I Apply For The Programme?
All applications must be submitted ONLINE through the TEEP PORTAL. Answer a series of mandatory questions and upload additional documents and identification materials. You will receive a confirmation email within 1 working day of submission.
Can I Reapply In Another Programme Cycle?
