The Botho University Entrepreneurship Lab (eLab) is proud to announce that two of its beneficiaries, Edmore Jackson and Thabisang Letsamao, have made it to the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Program (TEF-EP). Edmore Jackson is the 2017 eLab Resident Entrepreneur while Thabisang Letsamao, though not a Resident Entrepreneur, has benefitted from regular attendance to eLab activities. Letsamao has previously unsuccessfully applied to the residency but did not let this deter him from benefitting from the eLab.

The eLab hosted the TEF-EP Application Clinics to encourage eLab Residents and other interested students to apply to the Africa-wide entrepreneurship program. The eLab also shared adverts to encourage students and alumni to apply. Among the many who applied through the eLab, Jackson and Letsamao were successful. Click here to find out how the eLab has contributed to the entrepreneurial journey of the two gentlemen.

The eLab is an initiative run by the University’s Students and Alumni Affairs Department to accelerate and foster the entrepreneurial experience outside of the classroom and into the community. You can read more about the eLab here.

In fostering entrepreneurial experience, the eLab brings opportunities such as the TEF-EP to interested students and alumni. The TEF-EP was launched in 2015 and is the largest African philanthropic initiative devoted to empowering 10 000 African entrepreneurs, to creating a million jobs and adding $10 billion in revenue to Africa’s economy. To benefit from this program, be on the lookout for the next opportunity by visiting their website and by following eLab activities shared on the Blackboard and Facebook platforms.
