>About Jamboree

Jamboree Overview

The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation invests in the education and development of individuals with entrepreneurial potential within Southern Africa. We do so because we believe that these curious, driven and responsibly minded young people are capable of significantly, positively and permanently impacting the economic lives of the communities, cities and possibly even the country they operate in.

The Foundation takes a holistic approach to entrepreneurship development and there are three critical aspects: the person in whom we cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset, the practice of developing entrepreneurial skills and competencies and the context of understanding the African and global ecosystems.

Our goal for Jamboree 2024 is to create an inspiring and engaging experience that not only encourages our programme participants to solve everyday problems but also broadens their perspective on entrepreneurship as a viable career path.
