The number of Cameroonians in 2016 increased by eight, as against 17 in 2015. They represent diverse sectors, led by agriculture (six), healthcare (five), media and entertainement (4) and Information and Communication Technology (two). The young entrepreneurs will each receive 5 ,000 US Dollars as seed capital after training. “In TEEP’s first year, we spent over $ 8 million of our $100 million commitment – with $5 million going directly to entrepreneurs as seed capital - and the results have far exceeded our expectations. We have funded entrepreneurs, established networks and helped extraordinary people take control of their destinies,” said the founder, Tony O. Elumelu.
