Short Business Description: The Allan Gray Orbits Foundation's vision is to create responsible entrepreneurs for the common good. People often ask how the Foundation goes about selecting individuals. In this piece Anthony Farr attempts to answer this question noting that, as with Allan Gray's process for selecting stocks, the Foundation will always be working to improve its answer to this fundamental question.
At its simplest level, entrepreneurial behaviour is about an individual's ability to turn ideas into action. In its search for Fellows to help fulfil its vision, the Foundation looks for individuals who exhibit entrepreneurial behaviour measured against five pillars, which are defined in Table 1. The first two pillars, Intellectual Imagination and Personal Initiative, are character traits of individuals who have the curiosity to originate an idea and the initiative to bring that idea to life. The remaining three pillars - Spirit of Significance, Achievement Excellence and Courageous Commitment - describe the type of ideas that should come from these individuals and the qualities they will need to sustain their ideas.
