Media reports confirm that The Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) has digitally released a documentary film on how entrepreneurs trained by the Foundation are impacting the continent. The documentary is titled "Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurs: Transforming Africa".

"The film tells the story of the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Programme (TEEP), the Foundation's decade-long commitment of $100 million to empower 10,000 entrepreneurs from all of Africa, to create jobs and generate wealth," the foundation said in a statement, according to an Innovation Village report.

TEF founder, Tony Elumelu, in his remark said, "I am deeply proud of what we accomplished in TEEP's first year. We funded entrepreneurs, established networks and helped extraordinary people take control of their destinies and we did it on an incredible scale. This film is a depiction of Africans telling our own stories as we spur innovative and economic development on the continent."

For his part, TEF CEO, Parminder Vir, said, "Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurs: Transforming Africa is a documentary that tells the story of one man's vision to harness the ingenuity and creativity of Africa's entrepreneurs and once refined, unleash it as an engine of growth on the continent."
