Sol Plaatje University, in Kimberley, must be chest-puffingly proud of Chad Lucas, a final year BCom student who has been selected as the Deputy Chairperson of the national Entrepreneurship Development in Higher Education (EDHE) Studentpreneur Community of Practice (CoP), and already owns a promising business.

Vice Chancellor and Principal of Sol Plaatje University (SPU), Professor Andrew Crouch mentioned it in his welcome address to participants at the opening of the fifth Students Entrepreneurship Week on Tuesday. #SEW2021. #Rebuild. #Againstallodds. He said that as the host of this prestigious annual event, SPU was particularly pleased to have among its budding entrepreneurs, someone who could represent the university on the national CoP.
