The Entrepreneurship Development in Higher Education (EDHE) Entrepreneurship Intervarsity 2022 is gearing up for the second phase of the contest — internal rounds where student entrepreneurs compete against one another within their universities.

The competition kicked off on 24 February, when it opened for entries until 11 April. Registered students from all 26 public South African universities were eligible to submit entries across the four categories of the competition — (a) business ideas, (b) existing business: tech, (c) existing business: social impact, and (d) existing business: general.

To date, the competition has attracted 1682 entries, and, of those, 715 were found to meet the submission criteria and will be competing internally, within their institutions.
