"Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world." ~ Joel Barker

Vision

Young people have the best opportunity to experience and become entrepreneurs; they are now collaborating to make South Africa Africa’s leader in entrepreneurship and innovation in Africa and throughout the BRICS nations.

Mission

Our mission is to contribute to South Africa’s society by being an innovative leader in facilitating youth entrepreneurship development and support for startup businesses.

Values

Our culture encourages risk-taking, entrepreneurship and flexibility, and we embrace change as part of our drive for organizational effectiveness.

The Startup Foundation community is a diverse, dynamic place, where people are valued, supported and encouraged to take initiative, while developing their career and professional aspirations.

The Startup Foundation also values teamwork. We create a stimulating, foundational, highly professional and respectful environment, where our young entrepreneurs collaborate to enhance our communities today and in the future.

We wholeheartedly value transparency, sincerity, and integrity as a means to creating lasting relationships between the Startup Foundation members and the community that surrounds us.

Being loyal and direct with one-another is fundamental to fostering a flourishing community of solidarity and, in that manner, we will be able to maximize our networks and credibility.

Within the guiding light of innovation, we want to constantly create new things that seek to break conventional ties. In every instance there should be space and liberty to take risks, think in grandiose terms, and to rise above the average.
