Making an impact that matters and reciprocates.“It’s more than just entrepreneurial leaders – it’s leaders in the broadest context that are needed. It’s about creating opportunity – a sense of hope for everybody such that people can dream, not a dream that is impossible but a dream that can be realised. ”

– Allan Gray

Moving forward

‘Cultivating entrepreneurs’ is more than a mantra or a slogan, it’s a call to action – not only for us at the Foundation, but for all citizens in the bid to inspire the next generation to lead us with pride and dignity in paving the way for a prosperous and equitable South Africa. We believe the Foundation is well positioned to fulfill its ambitious goals and add momentum to the entrepreneurial revolution that is on our doorstep.

One of the Foundation’s strengths has always been its strong organisational values and its dedicated talent. The Foundation’s capacity to learn, grow and change as the organisation matures flows from the dynamism and passion of the people behind the scenes, driving the Foundation’s values in the firm belief that a few people really can change society for good. The task we set ourselves – to cultivate high-impact, responsible entrepreneurs – is not a straightforward one and in many respects, we break new ground all the time.

Our mission remains rooted in entrepreneurial mindset and education as our compass for beneficiary development and the impact we aspire to. We look forward to participating further in global opportunities, both to share lessons from our journey and to learn from others on how to improve the effectiveness of our programmes.

With Fellows now outstripping Candidate Fellows, we are confident the Association of Allan Gray Fellows will lead the way in redefining South Africa’s socio-economic landscape by creating opportunities through their innovation, passion and commitment to the Foundation’s enduring vision.
