SA Teen Entrepreneur Foundation

SA Teen Entrepreneur Foundation is a registered NPO. Its main objective is to instil a culture of entrepreneurship in young people through workshops, seminars  and conferences. Recently it has embarked on a drive to plant High School Entrepreneurs Societies in all High Schools across South Africa. The high school Entrepreneurs Society model was found to be the most effective way of creating entrepreneurial hotpots where they are accessible to a vast number of our young people. Each school nominates a Champion Teacher who in turn recruits 20 – 25 pupils to form the society. SA Teen Entrepreneur Foundation has created an Entrepreneurship program that starts with Idea Generation through to taking  business/products/ or services to market. The program is interjected by Idea Cafe days where the teams will pitch their idea/business to others within the confines of their schools. Most of the ideas it is hoped will solve some of the local problems and challenges. The final stage will include a grand-final presentations where teams from various school Entrepreneurs Societies will present their ideas to potential funders and supporters. The presentations will first be provincially and then nationally. The aim is to grow a new and young crop of entrepreneurs across the nation.

To run and resource an Entrepreneurs Society in the school will cost R35,000 for the full year. The following video shows you how and where this R35,000 will be used - To date some 80 schools from across the nation that have registered with us and 6 schools have received full funding. Our vision is to plant an entrepreneurs society in each and every school. South Africa has close to 27,000 high school so our vision is a vision for the whole nation.

We want to encourage all heads of schools to get in contact with us and register their school’s interest  on or contact  Lydia Zingoni Founder & Director: SA Teen Entrepreneur Foundation; Cape Academy of Science, Maths & Technology - Constantia, Cape Town Tel: 021 795 021 447 6183 I Cell: 082 907 0739 I Fax: 086 548 9766 Email: [email protected] ;; BIG DREAMS START YOUNG
