A SCHOOL FOR TREND

SETTERS, NOT WORKERS…

Our entrepreneurship and leadership school taps into the potential of ambitious high school and
university students by taking them on a special journey of 6 months that we call Expeditions. Each
expedition (character, leadership, entrepreneurship) focuses on equipping our startuppers in various
ways. The curriculum is slickly designed to shape you into the person of impact you need to become
by helping you raise a team so that you can start a real start-up and create a real impact at the end of
your time with Entrepreleaders School and beyond.

Our Values

Taunting

Taunting

Taunting is the capacity to build the audacity to take on seemingly insurmountable challenges. This value helps our students develop the adventurous spirit and flexibility of sight real entrepreneurs are known for.

Witty & fun

Witty & fun

It is not worth doing if it is not going to be fun. It is important for our students to develop humour, love what they do, and have fun on their journey to becoming entrepreneurs.

Teamwork

Teamwork

The African proverb says if you want to go fast go alone but if you want to go far go together. We believe our students are going far and that’s why collaboration and group effort are an intricate part of our ethics.

Emancipating

Emancipating

To emancipate is to set oneself free from the social, environmental, political, and sometimes even family restrictions that can enslave and limit the creativity and potential of our students. We provide guidelines and our students choose what works for them.

Self-initiating

Self-initiating

Self-initiative is the ability to be resourceful and work without any direction from someone else. We believe our students are called to compete in an uncertain and rapidly changing world where the self initiative will be ever critical for their success.

There are currently 264 000 000 entrepreneurs across Africa. That’s 22% of the African population and it’s the highest percentage in the world. Plus, more than half of South African Entrepreneurs are youth. That means in the 18 000 000 youths that live in South Africa, approximately 10 000 000 run their own businesses. Why wait?
