Entrepreneurship is moving rapidly from being perceived as an interesting sideshow to becoming the main event, and it is increasingly seen as a vital element in the economic future of any country. As a nation, we’re low on the rankings when measured by our entrepreneurial activity, and we need new ideas and entrepreneurial energy to create the growth and jobs needed to reverse the current levels of unemployment and poverty.
At the South African Institute for Entrepreneurship we believe that entrepreneurs can be nurtured, trained and developed, and believe that the key ingredient in this process is what we call the entrepreneurial mindset. At the heart of our mission is the drive to use innovative tools, materials and methodologies to bring about a decisive shift in the hearts and minds of young people and adults. This is a journey with many steps and many challenges, and starts with awakening and building the self-belief which is the vital platform from which each of us is able to step forward into the unknown.
This website will introduce you to the three main areas in which we are active in building entrepreneurial mindsets: Education, Agriculture and Enterprise Development. We invite you to join us on this challenging journey, and look forward to building a strong partnership, whether as funders or partners. Together we can build a culture that is alive with entrepreneurial potential!
