We seek out individuals who show potential. We believe that everyone has the ability to develop an entrepreneurial mindset; it’s a skill which, like any other, can be nurtured. We’re eager to provide opportunities for students who have already shown that they have an inclination in this regard.

How We Select?

We believe that everyone has the ability to develop an entrepreneurial mindset; it’s a skill which, like any other, can be nurtured. We’re eager to provide opportunities for students who have already shown that they have an inclination in this regard. Potential candidates are invited to fill in an application form which tells us more about them and their achievements to date. They then participate in an interview which is carefully structured to elicit information about their understanding of entrepreneurship. At this point the Scholarship selection process concludes and offers are made. Finally, applicants for the Fellowship who have been successful in the interviews are invited to attend a selection camp. Their attendance at our selection camp provides a platform where they are able to learn more about what it takes to be an entrepreneur and show us that they possess an entrepreneurial spark just waiting to be ignited.

How We Develop?

The Theory of Change
The Foundation is guided by it’s Theory of Change and Success Profile. The Theory of Change, outlines the relationship between what the Foundation offers through its programmes, and the changes experienced (programme outcomes) by its Programme Participants as they participate in the programme. These changes, follow sequentially and help guide the Programme Participants in achieving their entrepreneurial ambitions, which in turn aids the Foundation in achieving its ultimate impact and vision.

The Rainbow
That is, “Enterprises are created that offer meaningful employment for South Africa”. In the rainbow diagram below, the theory of change is illustrated in a radial format, showing that from beginning stages of its programmes, Programme Participants with high potential are selected. They then participate in the programme which results in them experiencing changes which are

illustrated in each bow (of the rainbow). The bows radiate outwards, and this represents the time span in which changes (or outcomes) will be experienced. The bows are arranged from selection, to immediate, intermediate and ultimate outcomes. Should all of these outcomes be achieved, it will lead to the Foundation progressing to achieve its intended impact.

The Programme
The Foundation’s programmes are focused on developing the potential of its Programme Participants. This involves providing programme support, activities and curriculum content that develops the knowledge, experience, personal attributes and competencies of programme participants. The success profile provides the programme curriculum, self-development, entrepreneurial development delivery and assessment practice with the detail and framework on which to develop its Programme Participants.
