Funding Opportunities at Allan Gray Makers StartUp Academy

The seed of the Allan Gray Makers programme was first planted in 2018 when the trustees’ ideas about entrepreneurship in Africa gravitated towards technical and vocational trades. At that time, an intervention in the vocation space did not exist in any of the Gray entities and so the Allan Gray Makers programme was born as a pilot project. The aim of the pilot was to prove models that work in this new vocational and technical context in South Africa to accelerate entrepreneurship and create jobs. After experimenting with different models, the pilot would be scaled across the country and later the continent.

By 2030, Allan Gray Makers will provide entrepreneurial education for at least 300 000 individuals within the technical and vocational trades. Those that AG Makers supports will go on to create 500 enterprises and support 2500 existing enterprises that will go on to create 12,000 meaningful jobs in South Africa.
